roxy remembered: a seductive slideshow

In the '30s, '40s and ‘50s, Short Vincent Street in downtown Cleveland was a bustling entertainment hub. Among the big-name spots on that little street was the Roxy, known as one of the most successful vaudeville and burlesque theaters in the Midwest.
On Saturday, February 23, Roxy Remembered took over the Beachland Ballroom, staging a burlesque show in hopes of raising money to erect a historical marker for the old Roxy.
Fresh Water photographer Bob Perkoski had a front row seat to the action.
