Photos: Beachwood World War II Service Members

Today being Pearl Harbor Day, we post this image showing one of the collections of photographs depicting Beachwood men who served during World War II. These photo boards, comprised of individual photos contributed by residents and their families of the era, hung in the windows of the Beachwood Circle Shop – currently site of the CVS Pharmacy franchise – during the war.

The photos were then set aside and lost or forgotten about for about three decades until rediscovered in the mid-1970s. Most of the photos have since been digitized and a future project will be to catalog, identify and build family information about each service member.
