Giant Easter Basket

This postcard shows the giant concrete Easter basket in Lakeview park, Lorain, Ohio. This basket was buit in 1937 by David Shukait, a Lorain Parks Department employee. It is 7'2" high, 10'3" wide and 5'4" deep. Another basket was built in Oakwood Park in 1939. Colorful concrete Easter eggs are placed in the baskets at Easter time.

It is a tradition in Lorain to take family Easter photos posed in front of the baskets. There is a large group of Lorain Easter basket photos on flickr.

  1. Imagine something like that basket, but with a tighter weave. And no handle. And 5 stories tall. And coloured in ugly rusty metal.

    I saw a building like that in Germany. One of the ugliest I'd ever seen.
