Although settlers moved into Norwood as early as 1787, Norwood was not incorporated as a city until 1902. Apart from the city of Cincinnati, Norwood is the second largest city within Hamilton County, Ohio. Several large companies, such as Globe Wernicke Company and the United States Playing Card Company, were developed in Norwood, creating rapid industrial growth and many job opportunities through the years. With the large companies booming came the development of homes, schools, and small businesses. Norwood: 1940–1979 depicts how citizens lived, shopped, worked, and played during Norwood's heyday.
