benmoralesThe Area Office on Aging asked me to photograph their headquarters, located in south Toledo on the corner of Arlington and Detroit, and I was happy to oblige. Built in 1930, it was once the nurse's dormitory to the Lucas County Hospital next door (now Lakewoods apartments) and later was renamed Maumee Valley Hospital. Originally the hospital mainly treated the poor and indigent but after its renaming it became a well-known teaching hospital, leading to great medical advancements and many distinguished graduates. I assume that like its counterpart, the former nurse's dormitory underwent a good deal of renovation to accommodate its current residences, but it appears to now be in impeccable condition. May we all age so gracefully. The historic photo I'm holding (courtesy of the University of Toledo) shows the three-story, red brick building shortly after its construction in 1930. I especially love the Model-T in the foreground, perhaps the best indication of this brief moment in time.
This is part of my Toledo Rephotography series, displaying historic images of Toledo photographed again in the present day at the exact same location. Hope you enjoy!
