Overview

A grand river city in southwestern Ohio, Cincinnati is rich in history and exquisite charm. In these pages you will experience unparalleled architecture and art such as that seen at Union Terminal and the Eden Park Conservatory, powerful waterfront and landscapes skirting the magnificent Ohio River, and entertainment sites including the wondrous Ohio Grove Amusement Park— "The Coney Island of the West." Take time to see disaster cards depicting the fierce tornado of 1915, the flood of 1937, and a terrible fire in the early 1900s! Learn about the important Underground Railroad significance of Cincinnati in times past. Over 225 vintage, hand-tinted postcards dating back to the turn of the century showcase the nostalgic quality of the "Queen City." Whether it's the excitement of Cincinnati's busy streets and towering buildings, the active riverfront metropolis, or zoological and natural wonders, Cincinnati will astound as you fondly explore its progress from small river town to thriving city. Approximate dating and postcard values will aid collectors in building their own collections of these striking images.
