Hope Bridge Stonecutters

Stone carvers sitting atop one of four "Guardians of Traffic," which were transportation-themed Art Deco pylons crafted to crown the supports of the Lorain-Carnegie Bridge in 1932. After extensive upgrades to its roadway in the early 1980s, the bridge reopened as Hope Memorial Bridge in tribute to the family of Cleveland-born entertainer Bob Hope, many of whom were stonemasons.
