When you walk around downtown Cleveland, do you ever imagine what it looked like 100 years ago? Local artist and software developer Steve Kocevar is fascinated with Cleveland’s history, so he began combining past and present images of historic Cleveland landmarks into photos that show how much they have changed. Check out Steve’s photos of Cleveland Public Auditorium and Conference Center below.
We are proud to be the exclusive caterer of this historic venue which has hosted the 1924 and 1936 Republic National Conventions and the 2009, 2012, 2015, and 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies, along with Martin Luther King Jr., Ray Charles, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, the Rolling Stones, the Jackson 5, and Elvis Presley!
