New Link: Greater Cincinnati Memory Project

Ever wondered what Cincinnati used to look like 60, 70, 100 years ago? Well, check out this site: Greater Cincinnati Memory Project
They have put together an impressive collection of thousands of historic photos of the greater Cincinnati region. You can use the search engine to find specific buildings or streets or anything. Enjoy!

Here's an example of some of the cool stuff you can find: Click Here
Its a picture of 12th and Vine in 1898! The building on the left with the bay windows is part of The Duncanson Lofts now in the Gateway Quarter. Its amazing how well preserved it is. It looks just as good now as it did 110 years ago!(The arch going across the street is a temporary structure built for a parade event.)
