Treasures in Black & White showcases historic photographs originally published in the book, “Historic Photos of Cincinnati” with text and captions by Linda Bailey. This book inspired Cincinnati Museum Center’s 2014 FotoFocus Biennial show Treasures in Black & White: Historic Photographs of Cincinnati. The 52 large-format photographs in our winter exhibit contain 100 years of Cincinnati history documented in black and white photographs. From rare, early-camera images documenting the Civil War era to many subsequent scenes and events — the Great Flood of 1937, the returning heroes of the 20th-century wars, early television stars, the rising urban cityscapes of 1960 — Treasures in Black & White: Historic Photographs of Cincinnati captures the Queen City, between 1860 and 1960.
