Rick Barr

Rick Barr, the guy who published a blog with many historic photos from the Catholic Telegraph, died last week. Below are three (of many) interesting photos he posted. These are all demolished:

Sacred Heart Italian church at 527 Broadway
 


St X Commercial School, 520 Sycamore
 


Teacher's College, stood directly the east of St George's in Corryville
 


The Catholic Telegraph has been continuously published in Cincinnati, since 1831! I would love to see more of their extensive archives published online.

I would love to fly back in time for an afternoon and see how Cincy looked " back in the day."

I always wondered what was east of St. George. Thanks for the pictures.

With this city, seems like whatever "was" is guaranteed to be better than what "is"- where ever it may be.
