A remarkable escape from decades-long captivity on Seymour Avenue...a troubling triple-slaying in East Cleveland...a 75th birthday for the Man of Steel...and Hollywood fires up (and in some cases, ties up) Greater Cleveland as it films the Captain America sequel. Such are just a few of the stories ideastream reporters captured in both reports and images this past year, which have been compiled in a 3-minute slideshow below.
This slideshow can either be viewed manually, by clicking the arrows to advance each image (enable captions to read a description of each individual one). Or you can click the "play" button to see all the images transition automatically with a musical soundtrack.
Slideshow produced by ideastream's Brian Bull, with images largely taken by fellow reporters at WCPN and OPR member stations, unless otherwise noted.
