A History of Cleveland, Ohio in 50 Objects, #1 of a Series: The Letter ‘A’

A couple of months ago, the New York Times ran a feature entitled  “A History of New York in 50 Objects,” a selection they hoped “could embody the narrative of New York.” They were inspired by the BBC’s “History of the World in 100 Objects,” and I in turn have been inspired by them.

Probably any city or civilization could inspire such a list, but Cleveland … well, it’s so goofy and so sober and so cultured and so vulgar in turns that I can’t imagine the list ever ending.

But the beginning?  The beginning is easier.

To be updated whenever I feel like it.  Another part of the “30 Days of Comics” effort.  Now I’m only two behind.
