Summertime and the Ohio River 1970s

This photo reminds me of a childhood memory. My b estfriend's mother took us down to the fireworks/riverfest. It might have been the first year WEBN did that. I was either a preteen or early teen. We saw hippy types swimming in the river and jumping off the ice-breakers, We begged to do this but were only allowed to go in right by the serpentine wall and climb right back out. We also saw the same type of people climbing to the top of very high light poles. I think the next year they started greasing them.

I love these old photos of Cincinnati. The city has the richest history of any place I know! It just envelopes me every time I look around. I am focusing on the older parts of Cincinnati as themes for a series of drawings. I just completed this colored pencil of an abandoned townhouse on 425 Whiteman St. if you'd like some artwork on your blog! http://katherinejft.blogspot.com/2013/05/new-work-souvenirs_8.html
