Ken Burn's Prohibition

I'm sure no one is reading this blog anymore since I've basically stopped posting anything new for months on end. However, if there are ANY stragglers still hanging on by the thinnest of threads...Here's a relevant post!

Check out Ken Burn's Prohbition on pbs.org. If you're at all like me and you spend a significant amount of time day-dreaming about the way things used to be, especially in Over the Rhine, this movie really lets your imagination run wild!

There are even a few specific shout outs to Cincinnati! However, what's most fascinating to me is the amazing descriptions of life in the late 1800s. It really gives you a renewed appreciation for the stock of buildings we have still standing here in OTR and all the history we have just dripping from our streets.
