1938 Downtown Massillon Survey

In 1938, the Massillon Chamber of Commerce conducted a survey of downtown businesses. In addition to the statistics on products and foot traffic, the survey contains many photographs of Lincoln Way, capturing a snap shot of the whole downtown Massillon as it stood in 1938. See if you can identify buildings that are still standing!
