CICCO'S

SHOPTALK:On both desktops this week are old pix of the Cicco Restaurant. The shoptop pic shows the interior of the place – very nice. It’s a good deal bigger than I would have thought. I not the piano and what appears to be a place for a band. So I’m assuming it was a restaurant with a little class.

I never visited the place, but I wish I had. It was destroyed by fire in late December of 1958 as it was being remodeled for residential use. Louis Cicco the original owner started the business in 1938 and sold it in 1957. He was born April 15, 1902 in Italy and died on his birthday in the Lorain hospital on April 15, 1959 at the relatively young age of 57. [I can say that now because I’m relatively old.]

Mr. Cicco came to the U.S. in 1908 and as a young man had worked at the American Shipbuilding Company in Lorain for 30 years. He had also worked as an auxiliary policemen for the City of Lorain during prohibition. He was well known for his spaghetti sauce.

After he sold the restaurant, he sold real estate and lived with his wife Edith on Risdon Road west of town.

I never knew him, but I certainly knew his children; Ketti and Richard. If hell could be raised these both these children knew how to raise it – and that’s not a negative comment. They were exciting personalities all by themselves. They lived life to the fullest.

The house part of the old Cicco restaurant still stands. But the restaurant itself is but a memory.

SLOW DAYS AT THE MUSEUM: There have been but few visitors to the museum this winter. That’s note entirely a bad thing though. It has afforded me time to review a bunch of things and work out some bugs in others.

I have acquired many things: Vermilionite Frank Homitz brought in a plethora of snapshots that I’ll be scanning and using in time. He also donated a piece of siding from the Kishman Fish Company. It’s on display beneath a siding painting of the old fishery. The painting may also be on a piece of Kishman siding.

During a terrible windstorm a few weeks ago one of our plexiglass windows blew out. I came to work and a cold breeze was blowing upstairs. When I found the window (over the kitchen sink) I began to temporarily replace it with duct tape. Wouldn’t you know that I ripped on a piece of tape, sent the roll on the range behind me, and when I went to grab the roll for another piece it was out of reach.

It was a balancing act – but I finally succeeded. We’re now looking to replace the windows.

Those things happen…

Historically,

QUAIL FARMERS: These two fellas weren’t really farmers, but they did raise birds. In this case they had been raising quail. Both men were members of the Vermilion Fish and Game Club. I know that Harvey Krapp (right) was a charter member of the club. I’m not sure about the other fella, John Trinter. But no matter. The quail were raised in John’s yard across the street from the Vermilion Evangelical and Reformed church (in the background). My assumption is that the men were going to take them out to the club and set them free. Someday I may find the story that belongs to the pic – taken in the 1940s.

RUDY

HE TOOK OVER 100,000 PHOTOS: “He Took Over 100,000 Photos.” That’s what the headline above an article about him in the Lorain (Ohio) Journal boldly announced to the world in June of 1955. The bottom line was that he had taken just a smidgen less than 28 thousand picture a year, some 2,250 a month or approximately 75 photographs per day over the period of 36 years. If they had been just any photographs those statistics might have been meaningless. But most persons seriously interested in a pictorial history of the Erie-Lorain County region in Northern Ohio between 1919 and 1967 have likely seen many of them and will easily recognize the photographer’s name: Rudy Moc.

His given name was Rudolph Leopold (Rudy Leo) Moc. But professionally, and personally, it appears that he preferred to be known as Rudy. He was born March 1, 1896 in Obergeorgenthal, Bohemia (a.k.a. the Czech Kingdom). In 1908 he came to America with his sister, Verna, mother Anna and stepfather Alonis Bayer. According the 1920 U.S. census the family eventually settled on West 23rd Street in Lorain where Mr. Bayer had found work as a carpenter.

At age 15 Moc was selling Larkin (soap) products from door-to-door. When he won a photographic outfit for his efforts it didn’t take long for him to initiate a new career and earned an extraordinary reputation along the way. Around 1913, at the tender age of 17, Rudy took a job with the “official photographer” for Lorain’s National Tube Company carrying heavy equipment. He worked hard and by age 19 he was offered his boss’s job. When he left the National Tube job he went to work at the Rembrandt Studio in Lorain. Again, he worked hard and by 1919 he was in business for himself in a small building on the east side of Grand street just north of the railroad tracks in “good ol’’ Vermilion. Many of the photos he took for what was then Vermilion’s fledgling High School annual, Hi-Times. His “Sunset Studio” logo appeared on the lower right corners of those early photos. [F.Y.I. The Sunset Studio building would have been located between the current site of The Old Vermilion Jailhouse Bed and Breakfast facility and the railroad tracks.] To just say he was successful in his enterprise would probably be an understated understatement.

By 1920 Moc had moved his studio to Lorain, the Sunset Studio name had been replaced by a stylish Rudy Moc Studio and Camera Shop logo. Soon professional photographers throughout Ohio and several other states began to pay attention to his portraiture work. In 1927 a building that was specifically designed and built for his growing business opened at 2035-37 Broadway in Lorain. It was a monumental achievement for a poor kid with only a 10th grade education who had migrated to America from Bohemia less than 20 years earlier. He did just as well personally.

In 1922 Rudy married a Vermilion girl named Esther Wittmer. The Wittmer’s were well known about our town during the early part of the 20th century. Her father, George, was a carpenter. Her mother, Ida Elizabeth, was the daughter of Samuel Darley and Margaret Bachman, both prominent members of the Brownhelm community.

As the family prospered, Rudy and Esther and their two boys, Rudy and Roger, enjoyed life in a wonderful home on Darrow Road (near Furnace Road) just south and west of town. Both boys graduated from Vermilion High School. Their home by the way, was one of, and perhaps the first, in the Vermilion area to have an in-ground swimming pool as well a stable and pasture for horses among other things.

During his younger days in Lorain Rudy had been an avid boater and had even served as commodore of the Lorain Yacht Club in 1934. He also enjoyed fishing. During the 1930s he was the subject of a UPI report in newspapers throughout the U.S. when he accidentally snagged a sturgeon in the back while fishing on Lake Erie. But as he grew older he enjoyed spending time on land at his Vermilion home in his greenhouse.

Esther passed away in 1961 and Rudy took leave of this life eight years later. Today both rest in the Brownhelm Cemetery. Between the markers over their graves is another stone with the iconic “Moc” logo engraved on it. It wasn’t really necessary. That’s because there are over 100,000 photographs of the yesteryear to remind us of the man whose name was Rudy Moc.

YESTERYEAR'S NEWS: The following clips are dictated transcriptions from past issues of The Vermilion News. I think you will find them both interesting and fun...

Vol. XIV, No 40 - VERMILION, OHIO THURSDAY, March 16, 1911

Fishing Season Opened

Some 10 tugs and two or three gasoline boats left the harbor Wednesday morning to set nets. The weather was fairly good when the start was made but before the return trip one of the worst gales ever experienced on Lake Erie was blowing. Mercury dropped from 38 to 28 at noon and this morning it was 12° above zero.

The boats from Vermilion were considerably shaken up but some of them succeeded in setting their nets before coming in. A large gasoline boat Chas. A Trinter was roughly used in the shifting of the deck load of nets caused some anxiety for a time. We are glad however to say that all boats of the Vermilion fleet came home safely. The gasoline boat Olive from Huron came in the harbor here be being unable to reach Huron. The fishermen here have little to say regarding the storm saying it was “nasty” weather.

At Huron the gasoline boat Katie G. Was disabled and the towline breaking while at tug was towing her into port was wrecked against the breakwater. The two men on board were rescued.

The thug Silver Spray is reported missing with a crew of six men. The boat started to fish out of Cleveland yesterday morning.

SILVER SPRAY LOST

Capt. Purdy’s Body Recovered Near Cleveland

The NEWS received word this afternoon of the body of Capt. James Purdy of the Silver Spray being found near Cleveland. The hope that the crew had escaped has been abandoned. The Cisco reported missing safe.

The crew of the lost boat was as follows:

Capt. James Purdy, of Erie
Engineer Robert Watts, Erie
Henry Anderson, Cleveland
Edward Holmes, Cleveland
Thomas Reed, Erie
Charles Brazo, Cleveland.

… The crew of the Silver Spray included Capt. Purdy, thirty-four, of Erie; Robert Watts, engineer, Erie; Edward Holmes, 2669 Detroit avenue; Henry Anderson, 2610 Detroit avenue; Thomas Reed, Erie, and a boy believed to have been Joseph Johnson, sixteen, a cousin of Edward Holmes, of the crew. The boy had been engaged before the tug steamed out…

Sandusky Register
March 17, 1911

SILVER SPRAY RAISED: Cleveland, June 5. - The fishing tug SILVER SPRAY, which went down with all hands in the big gale of March 15, was yesterday docked at the Great Lakes Towing Company's dock in this city.

The trip up the river with the ill-fated boat was like a funeral procession. Fishermen, lake sailors and dock hands lined the river bank along the whole course of the boat's passage and as the craft, covered with dirt and weeds, came in sight, all bared their heads until the boat was out of sight.

No more dead were found in the boat when it was raised. Over $100 worth of canvas was used to cover the holes so that the tug could be made to float. Pumps were kept going on it from the time it came above the surface of the water, but even with their aid and the large stretch of canvas, the water could not be kept out.

The boat may be repaired and put back in commission as a fishing tug.

-Buffalo Evening News
-Monday, June 5, 1911

The fish tug SILVER SPRAY, out of Cleveland, fished out of Dunkirk many times. Sometime about the turn of the century it piled up on the breakwall at Cleveland in a terrific snowstorm, and the entire crew of six frozen to death. Later the tug was repaired by the Fix Brothers of Buffalo, named CHARLOTTE and fished out of Dunkirk again with Al Donnelly as captain.

Meeting at an evening reception a rich merchant who is not particularly distinguished for his generosity to good works, the burgomaster approached him with a remark: “I want you to give me $1000 for our town’s charities.” With a gasp of astonishment the merchant replied: “You can stand on your head before you get any money out of me!” No sooner were the words out of his mouth when, to his bewilderment – which was shared by the other guests in the crowded room – the burgomaster carefully placed his hands on the carpet, and with the mayoral legs gracefully elevated in the air, passed in an inverted attitude out of the room. Returning a moment later he claimed his $1000 fee for the performance. The amazed merchant immediately handed him a check for the sum.

HISTORY OF ERIE COUNTY

CHAPTER XIV.

THE PRESS OF ERIE COUNTY.

…The Sandusky Local was founded as a weekly newspaper by Ernest King, jr., of Middletown, Conn., who at that time was one of the proprietors of the Middletown Sentinel and WitnessSandusky Journal. The weekly issue of the Local met with such continued success that a daily was projected and successfully published by its proprietor, beginning on the 2d of April, 1883, as a six-column folio. The publication of the paper in these two editions was continued independent in politics until November, 1884, when the paper espoused the cause of Democracy, that party at the time having no daily paper to champion its principles. In April, 1885, Mr. King finding that the newspaper property in which he had an equal interest with his father in Middletown, Conn., demanded his personal attention, sold out the paper to F. P. Lyman and F. W. Stevens, the latter having been an attachee of the office since the paper was first issued. The first paper appearing under the proprietorship of the new firm was dated April 27, 1885. In March, 1886, O. P. Wharton, a veteran Democratic editor of Youngstown, O., was engaged as editorial writer and continued in such capacity during the proprietorship of Lyman & Stevens. In July, 1886, Mr. King having sold his interest in his eastern paper, and desiring to again enter the business in Sandusky, bought out the interest of Lyman & Stevens, the services of Messrs. Wharton and Stevens being retained by Mr. King. The paper continued under the proprietorship of Mr. King until March 3, 1887, when he received an advantageous offer from A. E. Merrill and C. C. Bittner, who were desirous of uniting the two factions of the party by consolidating the two opposing Democratic organs, and the consolidation was therefore effected by the sale of the Local to these parties on the above date.

This purchase finished the publication of the Local, as it did also that of the Journal as a separate concern, the consolidated paper appearing on March 3, 1887, as the Sandusky Daily Journal and Local, and the weekly edition on March 5, as the Weekly Journal and Local, under the firm name of Merrill & Bittner.

At the time this co-partnership was formed, A. E. Merrill was filling the offices of probate judge of the county and president of the Citizens' National Bank, so that the entire management of the paper devolved upon Mr. Bittner, a lawyer by profession, and who had previously held the position of justice of the peace, and member of the board of education, and, at this time, was one of the recognized leaders of the Democracy of the county. O. P. Wharton was retained by the new firm as editorial writer, as were also several of the attachees of both offices. The consolidated paper first appeared as a six-column folio, but the demands for advertising space was such that the new proprietor found…

SOME THINGS NEVER CHANGE

Early in the Civil War, when the Union armies were suffering repeated defeats, Abraham Lincoln was discussing the war situation with his cabinet.

"How many men do you estimate are in the Confederate army?" a cabinet member asked.

"About a million and a half," said Lincoln.

"That many?" said another member. "I thought the number was considerably less."

"So did I" said Lincoln, "but every time one of our generals lose a battle, he insists that he was outnumbered three to one - and we have about 500,000 men."
