PFF Again!

Two weeks in a row. Wow. This is an accomplishment. I have no sweet and quirky postcards to share because my collection mostly consists of my dear Queen City and holidays. Hopefully I will not bore you to death with Cincinnati. (Yes, for those who were trying to guess about last Friday's PFF post, Longfellow was speaking of Cincinnati, Ohio as the Queen of the west.) This postcard shows the center of our city, Fountain Square as it looked sometime around...let's just say, before I was born, tee hee.
Oh how I wish I could time travel. Below are a few pictures of the Tyler Davidson Fountain as she stands today.
Still lovely and still the bustling center of town.
Thanks for hosting Marie. Now I am off to see all the other postcards.

Have a fun filled Friday, P.
Pin It!

I just love seeing "then and now" pictures! Another place I'd love to visit - so many of them this week. :)

I love seeing the modern version of old postcard scenery!

I sometimes wish I could time travel as well. Seeing the old postcards and a seemingly less hectic life makes it so desirable. What a great statue!

At last the answer to why we drive on a parkway -- the road was the way past this fountain and park. I'm glad it hasn't been removed in the name of progress.

Aaahhh Cincinnati!
A lovely city!
How are things there?

I love that fountain.......The building on the left of the postcard looks like it could be in Paris....I always love when you share pictures of Cincinatti.

Gorgeous Pam!
Love the "then & now" perspective.
I would love to visit Cincinnati.

BTW.. I usually have my sound muted when I am browsing, but it happened to be on this time and I have to say "I Love Your Playlist"!! :)

Have a great weekend sweetie!

This is FABULOUS! I'm exploring Cincinnatti with the summer wind blowing in my face! How exciting to travel back in time with you:) I'm sooo happy that you joined PFF. My connection here on vacation is very escargot like. I'm ususally not so late!

A great postcard.

It's always interesting to see how things have changed (or not) by comparing them to current times.
