Shillito's, former department store in downtown Cincinnati, Oh. Now a condo.

Shillito's, former department store in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio. When living in Cinci, I shopped here often.

Sadly, it was torn down in 1977 and a hotel was constructed in its place. Some portions of the theater were saved and are now located in other buildings including Music Hall and the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County.    The facade was also later duplicated on the 5th Street side of the Albert B. Sabin Convention Center — about 3 blocks from where the original theater once stood.

The Facade had been placed on the Convention Center; but once it was refurbished I don't know if it was left or not.

Findlay Market, located in downtown's Over-the-Rhine district, is Ohio's oldest continually operating public market. The market sells produce, meat, baked goods, and more, and is surrounded by small, independently-owned shops and stands.

In this bustling public market built in the century, browsers find crafts and fresh produce from April to November. About two dozen indoor merchants sell year-round. Findlay Market is in Over-the-Rhine, a historic downtown neighborhood.

The Ohio River flood of 1937 took place in late January and February 1937. With damage stretching from Pittsburgh to Cairo, Illinois, one million people were left homeless, with 385 dead and property losses reaching $500 million. Federal and state resources were strained to aid recovery, as the disaster occurred during the Great Depression and a few years after the Dust Bowl.
