The Detroit-Superior Subway whisked passengers from downtown to Cleveland's West Side for many years before finally coming to a halt in 1954. It's a fascinating piece of Cleveland history that still exists, even if Clevelanders can only visit it when special events are held there. Here's what it looked like then and now, as well as what construction looked like when the bridge was first built.
