"Cincinnati was the first all-American city founded after the Revolutionary War. Steamboats navigated the Ohio River from 1811 and within a few years, thanks to the Miami & Erie Canal connecting Lake Erie, Cincinnati was a bustling trading port and a leader in shipbuilding and meatpacking, an industry which provided raw materials for Procter & Gamble and Emery. Cincinnati then and now shows how the city which was once the sixth largest in the country, has developed and changed over the last 150 years, using fascinating archive photos matched with the same viewpoint today"--Back cover.
