Looking from the back towards the double doors in the front.

Lots of walking, back around front.

Looking in towards the back side.

Imagine above that ceiling is what remains of a house with a full attic, stairs, chimneys, fireplaces and its own seperate roof. All that being held up by those posts running down the center.

Last loom for today. Been here 7 hours. Time to go home.


It's around 9:00 and they are already busy at work.



If you look close you can see a fireplace opening.

Since we zoomed in to see up in the attic we are also getting a zoomed look at the rain coming down as well.



A better view of the fireplace opening.


Back in front again. The three front rooms of the second floor of the house are fully exposed now. These were the room that Dr. Metz had his medical practice in. These three rooms were added when the first floor was changed from a house to a commercial building. Courtesy of Juanita Ruffner.

This shows the doorway leading to the center room of the three front rooms. The doorway on the back wall leads through what could be a coat room to the hallway/stairs down to the street.

This is a better look at that back wall. That is actually a window which you can clearly see light from the other side where it appears in Part 5.


Some of the steel beams that supported the structure above the ceiling of the first floor.

There were some of the beams that those pillars in the commercial space supported.

Hyperlinking, or as it is also called framing, without permission is not permitted.
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.
The East Liverpool Historical Society reserves the right to charge such an individual a fee for the use of the Society’s material.
