Forgotten Cincinnati: Photographs from the 1880s
November 18, 2016 — March 5, 2017 | Sinton Gallery

In 2013, a private collector rediscovered a trove of large glass-plate negatives. These fragile documents by unidentified photographers constitute a time capsule of late-19th-century Cincinnati. Group portraits reveal the faces of former residents. Street scenes show life in a bustling city and record buildings that no longer exist. Construction views and industrial interiors portray Cincinnati as a developing modern metropolis. The exhibition features twelve recent photographic prints made from the original negatives, as well as examples of the negatives themselves. These astounding images conjure the Queen City’s vibrant past.
