MASSILLON – The Massillon Museum’s second-floor Photography Gallery now features Collection Snapshot: Faces of Massillon Business – images spanning about a century selected from more than 75,000 photographs in the permanent collection.
Small downtown businesses local visitors might remember include Frieg’s Restaurant, Kanner’s Store for Men, Segel’s, Bordner’s, The Ideal Company, the Sugar Bowl, and Baltzly Drug Store.
Massillon industries are represented by several 1960s-era images of Republic Steel, the inside of the Superior Brand Meats meat locker in the 1950s, and the men and boys who worked at the Rhodes Glass and Bottle Works early in the 20th century.
The exhibition can be seen during regular museum hours – Tuesday through Saturday 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 2 to 5 p.m. In collaboration with Massillon’s “Last Saturday” event, Massillon Museum extends its hours until 7 p.m. on the last Saturday of each month. The Massillon Museum is at 121 Lincoln Way E. Admission is free.
