New Book Explores History of Downtown Cincinnati
- 07/18/2011

Arcadia Publishing

More Info on This Book: Historic Downtown Cincinnati

The newest addition to Arcadia Publishing’s popular Images of America series is Historic Downtown Cincinnati from local authors Kent Jones and Steven J. Rolfes. The book boasts more than 200 vintage images and memories of days gone by.

Walking down the dirt, cobblestone, or paved streets of downtown Cincinnati in the past, there is no telling whom a person would meet. Someone might rub elbows with future presidents, such as Hayes, Taft, or that visiting lawyer from Illinois--Lincoln; dine with Generals Wayne, Grant, or Sherman; have tea with Harriet Beecher Stowe; or share a mug of Hauck beer with Frank Duveneck, Stephen Foster, or that poet-warrior William Lytle. A person lingering in the opulent hotels may meet visiting artists such as Junius Booth, Charles Dickens, Mark Twain, Henry Irving, and his manager, Bram Stoker; hear a speech by abolitionist Salmon P. Chase or flirt with the pretty Confederate spy Lottie Moon.

Once the furthest expansion of the western frontier, every street and corner of downtown Cincinnati has been tread by the famous and infamous. Historic Downtown Cincinnati is the story of America, of businessmen like the brothers-in-law Procter and Gamble, of visionaries like McGuffy, and powerful political bosses like George Cox.

Highlights of Historic Downtown Cincinnati:
• The early days
• Law, order and disorder
• Arts and leisure
• Business

Available at area bookstores, independent retailers, and online retailers, or through Arcadia Publishing at www.arcadiapublishing.com or
