Cleveland Municipal Stadium and Skyline, 1930s

This postcard view shows the relationship of the old Municipal Stadium to downtown. Like Browns Stadium, which now occupies the same site, Municipal Stadium's lakefront location was separated from the city's center by a major railroad corridor and thus somewhat divorced from the main axis of downtown activity between Public Square and Playhouse Square. Only in the 1980s-90s, with the redevelopment of the Warehouse District, did the stadium begin to connect somewhat better with downtown.
