Best Trips Down Cincinnati’s Memory Lane

Our city loves its history, and author Jeff Suess is serving it up in many different ways. He’s the Cincinnati Enquirer’s historian and archivist, which gives him access to photos and stories from days gone by that show up regularly in the newspaper’s Sunday edition. Suess has also produced a handful of books that revel in our city’s past. Lost Cincinnati collects stories of buildings that no longer exist, while Hidden History of Cincinnati is full of colorful stories that might otherwise be lost to time. In Cincinnati Then and Now he puts historic photos side by side with current images of the same sites. Cincinnati: An Illustrated Timeline, Suess’ beautifully color-illustrated coffee-table volume, presents pivotal moments in the Queen City’s history. If you’re a fan of our city, some of these books should be on one of your bookshelves.
