ROSSFORD, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Last year, the RossfordPublic Library asked for the community's help identifying old pictures from thearea. Now their picture collection is complete.

Dozens of pictures havebeen blown up and cover the walls of the library for floor to ceiling. Librarypatrons become surrounded by the visual history of Rossford.

The library says when theyasked the community for historical pictures, they received more than they knewwhat to do with. They decided to take some and create wallpaper out of them.

The oldest picture in thecollection dates back to the late 1800s. There's even a picture of the city'snamesake, Edward Ford and Carrie Ross.

"This is our family, thisis where we used to go, these are stores that aren't here anymore," saidKristine Goldsmith. "It's really great to have the history of a place that youknow."

The mural has also beenmade a part of the Rossford third grade curriculum.

The library would stilllike to see any historical photos of the city that the public may have. Visit their website here to share.
