Harrold’s Observatory

This image is from a period post card promoting the Harrold’s Observatory in Leetonia, Ohio, one of several Mr. Harrold financed.

Lost to Us: Harrold’s Observatory

The imprint on the face of the picture post card reads, “Harrold’s Observatory, Leetonia, Ohio. Equipment — 9 Inch Refracting Telescope, Meridian Transit, Chronograph, Stereoptican and Library. Open to public on any Tuesday night when sky is clear, for balance of the year 1914.” We take 1914 as the date of the image and printed card.

THE STORY OF THIS OBSERVATORY IS BEING ASSEMBLED. PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR MORE LATER
