Cincinnati's Golden Age 
With native Cincinnatian Betty Ann Smiddy as tour guide, Cincinnati’s golden age is celebrated via hundreds of vintage images from the historically significant decades surrounding the turn of the 19th century. Rediscover a time when incline railways provided access to hilltop neighborhoods, steamboats crowded the Ohio River wharves, and breweries, soap manufacturers, meatpacking plants, and other industries flourished. 

Cincinnati Revealed: A Photographic Heritage of the Queen City
With nearly 200 rarely seen vintage images and postcards, together with insightful text by Kevin Grace and Tom White, this visual volume guides readers on a unique historical tour of the city. Highlighted in this volume are the city's spectacular architectural achievements, cultural and educational centers, hubs of industry and transportation, legendary sports traditions, diverse neighborhoods, and, above all, the spirit of its citizenry.

Cincinnati Landmarks
Behind every landmark is a story, and Cincinnati has many stories. A charming gazebo is actually the site of a grisly murder committed by a gangster. Symphonies and operas performed in an elegant hall are actually serenading the forgotten dead of a century before. What is now an office building once held the relics of an ancient saint, attracting thousands of pilgrims every year. These and many other stories make up the tapestry of Cincinnati Landmarks.

Cincinnati Landmarks by Steven J. Rolfes
Author Steven J. Rolfes has spent years telling these stories in print, on the radio, and in a museum. He has selected numerous vintage postcard images from the Greater Cincinnati Memory Project, ranging from the early 1800s right up to the modern Oktoberfest Chicken Dance. Behind each image is a story—even a few ghosts! Some of these landmarks can still be seen; others, like the people who created them, are now only the memories of a great city.
