Anti-Freeway Cartoon, 1963

This editorial cartoon appeared in the Sun Press on December 26, 1963 in response to the proposal by the Cuyahoga County Engineer's Office to build freeways through Shaker and Cleveland Heights. The Clark and Lee Freeways would have met at an interchange near where the Nature Center of Shaker Lakes sits today. Horseshoe Lake would have probably been destroyed had the plan proceeded, but a series of protests by local residents (including the founding of the Nature Center in 1966) ultimately prevented the freeways from being built.
