CINCINNATI, OHIO—City leaders have been working hard on redeveloping the riverfront with parks, businesses and living. It’s a destination—a place to do things, or just watch the river traffic pass by. The Cincinnati Reds and the Cincinnati Bengals both have stadiums on the riverfront. These images were taken in July, 2010.
Parkersburg, West Virginia, was called Newport when it was first settled shortly after the American Revolution. It was renamed Parkersburg in 1810 after a legal battle with the city founders and the Revolutionary War Veteran Alexander Parker, who was given a land grant.
Today, you can find lots of history to explore in this Ohio River Town, the 4th largest town in West Virginia.
CINCINNATI, OH—It was a fortunate timing that my wife and I were relocating to the Cincinnati area in the fall of 2006. I was in town looking for apartments and potential studio space for my photography business, when I happened to cruise to the downtown area to take a few photographs of the riverfront only to discover the Tall Stacks Music, Arts, and Heritage Festival was underway. The festival was held every three or four years with a gathering of river boats.
I grabbed a few photos and then continued on with my mission.
Unfortunately, 2006 was the last Tall Stacks Festival. There were additional attempts to hold the festival in subsequent years, but the economic times and lack of sponsors prevented the festival from happening.
