Colorized photo from 1938, Oct Original title: Fountain Square Photographer: John Vachon Location: 80 5th East St, Cincinnati, OH
A favorite local hang out for the professional gentleman. A place where people from another generation could talk or just read the newspaper. Some feed pigeons.
This is Fountain Square park as seen in 1938, before they built the Fifth Third Building. There were two flag poles, I believe this is the one they removed. In the background is the Potter Stewart US Courthouse. The building on the left isn't there today either, I think that too was taken up by a large building, though it's hard to tell with this perspective.
The only things that remain in this picture is the courthouse, and the other flagpole which looks very similar to this one.
