Thanks for the link. These are gorgeous and well served by the black and white film of the day. Allows you see the truth behind the scene photographed without the distraction of color.
I have re-posted photos I found at the Library of Congress years ago. Great photos of early Cincinnati including the famous panoramic ones in full size!http://www.flickr.com/photos/ekalb/sets/72057594069543815/
Coolest collection of this type of photography in Cincinnati has to be the Kenyon-Barr photos taken before the "slum clearance" projects. All those memories and lives in those places are gone forever, except in those photos. Totally eerie.
A better comparison, because it is people oriented is Danny Ransohoff
And if you couldn't get Ekalb's link to work above try this.
