The Toledo-Lucas County Public Library has a number of historic photos on its website. To get a glimpse of what life was like for the Plenzler, Przybylski, and Mierzejewski ancestors, visit the site. It is located here: http://images2.toledolibrary.org/image_dc.asp. Particularly interesting are the collection of photos for the industries for which Toledo was famous: Willy-Overland (now Chrysler Jeep), Champion Spark Plug, Auto Lite, and others as well as some photos of the strikes that occurred as well as photos of neighborhoods and churches. As a teaser, I’ve linked to a photo of the interior of St. Anthony’s church, about 1900, of a service in progress.
