Ehrlich Shoes 1600 Main



Close up of Ehrlich's shoes sign:

[Where: 1600 Main Street, Cincinnati, OH 45202] nec Liberty and Main

I originally made this blog post in August 2009. Over past few years I have been contacted by people who used to shop here, and by the Ehrlich family. Below is a great picture sent in by the family. In the photo is Emil and Otto Ehrlich in July 1943. The photo was sent in by Otto's son, Ron. If you click on the photos you can get a larger view. I really like that the tile and storefront are the same now as 1943, not like the 1986 photo I took. I also like that in the glass you can see reflections of lots of old buildings.  Thanks Ron for the great photo.

I drive by this all the time to get to my house. It's nice to see some of the history of the building.

Hi - I have two family photos taken in front of Ehrlich's Shoe Store circa 1930. One of them features one of the men in the photo in your post. I would love to share them if you are interested.
