Fantastic. I love old photos of cities. Those aerials from 1935 were especially cool.

I had no idea there used to be a spire up there. Part of it is still there isn't it, but not as tall?

Yes, half the spire is there (the flat section). It's a shame because I prefer the old spire.

That's some serious ass 19th century urban fabric. Thanks for sharing. Cincy is kinda all mystical and mysterious to me, even though my city is a cousin - the more I see on here the betta.

Hows the city doing population wise, just looked at the population trends and it looks like the city is still losing tons and tons of people. From 1990-2000 the city lost 10% of its population and since 1950 looks like its lost nearly 170,000 people. Maybe, like STL its gained some population back since 2000, I hope so.

Cincinnati gained in population about 4,000ish residents (probably more, in reality) between 2000-2010. Not booming but it's a good sign for a very old major city.

Right after I got out of the Air Force I was taking a test for a job I wanted. One of the questions was how to spell Cincinnati. I freaked out and left the room. How hard was that test gonna be???

WOW. Cincinnati is great nowadays, but boy did it de-citify itself pretty hard. The old West End is intense.

Stunning and tragic thread.

Does Ohio have a "Dominant" City?

Is there agreement among Ohioans of the #1 city? Is it Cincy, Cleveland or Columbus? Columbus seems to be gaining in recent decades. The state capitol & state U. advantage I guess, plus central location.
