Cincinnati's Over-the-Rhine captures a fascinating urban neighborhood in vintage photographs. For over 150 years, the culture, politics, and architecture of Over-the-Rhine have influenced Cincinnati's development. Early German immigrants gave the neighborhood its moniker, after the bordering Miami-Erie canal, and also contributed to its beautiful architecture. Appalachian and African American citizens later contributed to the cultural diversity. Today, a vibrant arts scene co-exists along with revitalizing social programs that aid its underprivileged residents. Over 200 images reveal Over-the-Rhine's urban characters, street life, and architectural landmarks, including Music Hall, Findlay Market, and St. Mary's Church.
