PHOTOS: Eighteen images of places around town that are gone but not forgotten

City Grill in Gordon Square in 2005

Remember the Barbara Anne Bridal Shop on Ontario Street or the City Grill in Gordon Square? Cleveland is changing so rapidly, that storefronts we all passed on our way to work, school and social events are disappearing faster than most of us realize.

Our managing photographer, Bob Perkoski, however, rarely lets a Cleveland icon go unrecorded no matter how humble it may be. And for this week's Fresh Water, he's rounded up 18 images of places around town that are gone but not forgotten. Which of these did you stroll by on your way to the bus stop? Ever eat at Steve's Lunch or Perry's Family Restaurant? Not many among us will remember Gaylord's Discount Department Store, a sign for which is in one of the images below.

No matter how many of these you recognize, you won't find a funky uber-Cleveland photo round-up like this anywhere else.
