We're suckers for NewsNet5's video archives. Glimpses of Cleveland from decades ago simply tickle us in the right spot on a Monday morning after a long holiday weekend. This time they've posted clips from Black Friday in Cleveland in 1959 — yeah, it may be more crazy now, but it's certainly not a new phenomenon — and video from the Christmas parade. Enjoy.
