About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Washington Terrace: 1935

Washington Terrace: 1935

December 1935. "Washington Terrace, Model House Co. Hamilton County, Ohio." Photo by Carl Mydans for the Resettlement Administration. View full size.

 

Washington Terrace Neighborhood

I looked at the Insurance Maps of Cincinnati, Ohio, Vol. 4, commonly known as a Sanborn Map, but the monument/sculpture or park does not appear there. The Washington Terrace area does appear on Page 373 and is shown below.

Monument, What Monument?

Wonder what became of the monument at the far end of the photo. Wonder who was monumentalized. Washington?

Light up your life

Stonington Borough in Connecticut still has streetlights like the one here, but they're starting to be replaced by the modern ones, which is a shame. These kinds would be seen all over the small towns here, but the Borough is the last place of which I'm aware that still use the clear bulbs.

Half still there

It looks like one side of the street was sacrificed to put in Interstate 71 coming out of the downtown Cincinnati area.
