Mystery rod

What is that rod angling out from the eaves? Flagpole? Lightning conductor?

Looking for Tenants

The previous ones hopped a freight car on the tracks next door in hopes of obtaining more humane living conditions.

Ham Alley

Where Cinci's bad actors end up after too many years of scenery-chewing?

Little negatives

I get spoiled by all the 8x10 images we see here. It's good to see 35mm for a change to help me remember to appreciate the large format images.

Box in upstairs window

What is that?

[A refrigerator of sorts. Where you keep milk bottles in the winter. - Dave]

Cheap Ham

This is Ham Alley at Broad Street. It's the same tiny two-block neighborhood featured here.
