The Evening Review_Tue. Apr. 19,1904. Obviously the Emporium wasn't built yet, maybe not even on the planning table yet.

The Evening Review, Tue, June 26, 1906. A previous location. It doesn't tell us where they were moving to. However. one can speculate it would be to the Emporium but that is not for certain.

The Evening Review, Tue. Feb. 19, 1907. This mentions Fifth Street but not Emporium.

The Evening Review, Thu. Jun. 20, 1907. The earliest ad using the word Emporium

The Evening Review (East Liverpool, Ohio - 8 August 1907- Thursday. We have to assume that it probably was built in 1906 and opened maybe in very early 1907. It is odd that we have found no references in the newspaper mentioning any plans to build it, Construction beginning, completed, grand opening, etc. YOu would think that those things would be major news stories in East Liverpool at that time, worthy of some acknowledgement.

Legally speaking framing is still in a murky area of the law though there have been court cases in which framing has been seen as violation of copyright law. Many cases that were taken to court ended up settling out-of-court with the one doing the framing agreeing to cease framing and to just use a regular link to the other site.
The East Liverpool Historical Society pays fees to keep their site online. A person framing the Society site is effectively presenting the entire East Liverpool Historical Society web site as his own site and doing it at no cost to himself, i.e. stealing the site.
