CINCINNATI: College Hill in the snow

5 posts in this topic

These are a few random pics I took last Friday after we got 2-3 inches of snow (on top of the 5-6 that was already on the ground). As you can tell, Cincinnati road crews hadn't gotten to all of the side streets yet.

Crappy picture of the College Hill Town Hall (1880s) at Belmont and Larch, which fell out of use after annexation but is again being used by civic organizations:

The next pictures come from the area just SW of the intersection of North Bend and Hamilton (or just east of McAuley HS):

This old mansion on Lathrop is now some sort of Catholic home:

Engine Company No. 51 (1913-1914) on Marlowe Ave.:

Large homes on Belmont:

Laurel Court (1901), built by original Champion Paper founder Peter G. Thomson:

These next photos are from the area NE of the intersection of North Bend and Hamilton--namely Wittekind, Teakwood, Hollywood and Devonwood:

Hamilton Ave. was still a bit slushy:

And a bonus pic from Mt. Healthy--one of the remaining older farm houses on Compton Rd. (taken off of Mallory Ln.):

Great pics, Grasscat! I love older neighborhoods like this. The houses are unique, and builders back then actually paid attention to quality. Much better than today's identical, garage-dominated, vinyl-clad boxes.

Sooooo true. If there's anything I can't stand, it's vinyl siding. Hell, I barely like anything built since 1950!

What's even worse is when they take a nice old house & cover it with vinyl siding. And I have to agree with you...I don't like many houses built after 1950 either. It seems that 95% of them are cheaply constructed pieces of crap.
