City Engineer-Rapid Transit Collection
The University of Cincinnati Libraries were awarded a Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant from the State Library of Ohio to digitize 8000 prints and negatives of the Cincinnati subway project and street improvements from the 1920s to the 1950s. This project has concluded and the images are now available for viewing through the UC Libraries' Digital Resource Commons. A website with further information about the collection is coming soon.
The 53 monthly cards donated by Gaylord Oscar Shepherd Jr. to the Archives & Rare Books Library have all been digitized and are viewable in this web exhibit.
Nelson Hoffman’s postcards, ephemera, and research all offer a unique view into Cincinnati’s past.
We have digitized Cincinnati maps dating 1802-1929 and have made them available for research.
