Then and Now: Summer in the City

Two photos of OTR children playing in the neighborhood. The first was taken by Nick Thomas during this year’s Go OTR 5K and Summer Celebration. His thoughts on covering OTR and the event are worth a read and can be found at his photo website photo-cincy.com

5chw4r7z’s post on the event informs us that some of the children in the photo are of part of the Citykin family. Citykin is one of my favorite OTR-based blogs. Its goal “is to generate friendships and share information regarding the promotion and retention of families in the urban center of Cincinnati.”

The second picture comes via the US National Archives photostream on flickr and photographer Tom Hubbard:

And to top it all off, check out this compilation of US National Archives photos of Fountain Square from the 1970s. The song is “Summer in the City.” Video created by Fountain Square’s youtube user account: Genius of Water
