Coast Guard Station Prints
The first time I saw a photo of the old Cleveland Coast Guard Station I was amazed that a building with so much exotic style was approved for use by a government agency! When I first got a chance to visit I was then saddened to see it was nearly derelict and probably in danger of demolition. At the time it was so sad I didn't think it was appropriate for a poster. Fast forward a couple of years and I was delighted to learn the Cleveland Metroparks had taken over the site and are planning a renovation with an eye toward using the building as a hub for all manner of lake water sports and a northernmost destination of all the Cleveland Metroparks. This is a vision of what it will hopefully look like one day when renovations are complete.
Built in 1938 and designed by architect J. Milton Dyer the station was conceived in the Art Modern style. Anyone who didn't know it was on Lake Erie would instantly think it belonged in Miami Florida amongst the art deco hotels of the same era. I think it is obviously a very special building and will be a landmark for years to come.
