  1. I remember them stumbling into the vaults when this was dug up for the 1990's Kroger garage project.
  2. I prefer the term 'circuitous entertainment joint' but yes. a more permanent looking version in the spot the mobile version was located.
  3. TBH Steam radiators rock. My 1936 tudor revival has them and I would have a hard time going back to hot air heat. Especially with pets.
  4. It is his family home too, they have been selling land off the Estate for years so this is no surprise, It is just another way to make money and no desire to see it become a treasured home for another family by lowering the price like the rest of us who are selling homes may have to do when it wont sell for the desired price. You cant stop these people. http://cincinnatirefined.com/arts-design/history-of-2581-grandin-road-hyde-park-cincinnati-barrett-estate
  5. Another at the end of the 6th st viaduct near Evans street. It messed up traffic for weeks when they cut the wall to put the base in so i hope the upper part is installed quickly.
  6. My brother and the folk from the market put those lights on there a while back to draw attention to them as most people blew right past going both up and down the hill when they were installed at the end of last year. The blinky lights have helped. Guerilla traffic planning, but you are correct on how sketchy that was, i lived on the Marshall dead end for 18 years and there were many close calls. Never trust blinkers and where cars on extreme downward grades are intending to go.
  7. Wrong thread but the owners of the OG Izzy's & Former Poppies are doing just that as a tantrum for not getting their way to demolish it and build a ultra modern condo/daycare/school. It is just a block from city hall and couldnt be more of an eyesore to all around it. Grrrr. https://www.google.com/maps/@39.1048592,-84.5175721,3a,75y,164.51h,103.01t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1smHBC8tvnnrh2z39Eo8LqNA!2e0!6s%2F%2Fgeo3.ggpht.com%2Fcbk%3Fpanoid%3DmHBC8tvnnrh2z39Eo8LqNA%26output%3Dthumbnail%26cb_client%3Dmaps_sv.tactile.gps%26thumb%3D2%26w%3D203%26h%3D100%26yaw%3D238.56712%26pitch%3D0%26thumbfov%3D100!7i16384!8i8192
  8. Just looking through these again, and do you all think the building with the small spires (near the center) is the little synagogue that still remains in the alley now called Ruth Lyons lane in the backstage area? If so it is amazing it is still around after all teh changes around it. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Cincinnati,+OH/@39.1032066,-84.5130895,54a,35y,54.88h,45.96t /data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x884051b1de3821f9:0x69fb7e8be4c09317!8m2!3d39.1031182!4d-84.5120196
  9. I rarely stumble across old Cincinnati building photos i haven't seen before, but at my work we are helping to develop a timeline wall for the little museum at the Sisters of Mount Notre Dame de Namur in Reading and this is one of the images they have of their former home downtown. Here is the caption that goes with the image. 321 East Sixth Street, Cincinnati, Ohio, circa 1945. This “Cradle of the Institute in the United States” was sold to the Red Cross in 1945. The museum is closed due to Covid-19 now as it is also in a building that houses the retirement home and nursing wing but if you like weird little bits of history it is pretty cool. They have building fragments, personal items and lots of small artifacts on the history of the order from it's beginning in Europe till today along with tons of photos and paperwork. This building was in the hands of the Red Cross for a bit but was torn down along with most everything in this pic for the oldest main building of P&Gs current HQ.
  10. I get what you are saying, but that doesn't seem to stop the Water Works or Duke. I think they prefer to cut up new streets.
  11. Odds are that "coffee table" is full of cheese puffs.
  12. Do you really want to know............? https://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/2018/02/02/how-serious-fc-cincinnati-west-end-club-hired-mark-mallory-do-outreach/300304002/
  13. Wow i didnt even notice that now i cant not see it. I originally thought you meant the water/light damage. Now i have to track down an original to see what is what and if any of those homes were really there.
  14. Based on the cutbacks of projects to make up for the Covid-19 budget shortfalls the Mayor just spoke of, who else thinks this will be on top to get the ax? I completely disagree if it does, i just know of the Mayors feet dragging during the whole process.
  15. Just found this very cool picture of the Powell Valve Company.
