In the Spring of 1975, The Panhandle Press ran a series of articles on the history of East Liverpool, Ohio. The introduction to each artcile was as follows:
In 1895, a book printed in nine parts, entitled "The History of East Liverpool, Ohio and Area", was written by Col. R. H. Hill and his brother Walter B. Hill. The book was
published by the H. W. Kennicott Co., and it has been stated that possibly only 13 copies of the original book are still in existence. The Panhandle Press with the cooperation of
the Demoine Smith family, owners of one such book, is printing a copy of the entire book complete with original pictures for your enjoyment.
Below are just a few of the many images that ran in the Panhandle Press. Most of the buildings shown here no longer exist.
