Where'd you find the photo? What's up with the man holding the sign at the corner? Is this perhaps a photographic record of the building before it was demolished? I'm hoping to assemble a repository of West End photos. I went down to the Historic Society's library at the Museum Center a few years back, but they didn't have much.
It's from the Kenyon-Barr photos the city took before they demo'ed the whole area for I-75/Queensgate. That's why there's a catalog number on the sign the guy's holding. A bunch of the photos are available online through http://library.cincymuseum.org/ , but this isn't one of them, I haven't seen this before.(Incidentally I'm also amassing a repository of West End photos :)
