CINCINNATI: The Story of the Queen City by Clara Longworth de Chambrun

CINCINNATI: The Story of the Queen City

Email this review


Descendant of one of Cincinnati's first families, the author presents the history of her city from the days of the Northwest Territory, gives sketches of typical pioneers, the development of leading families, industries and cultural aspects, and brings her narrative down to present-day progress. Eulogistic in tone, bound for a good local sale and midwest interest. Political angles are sketchily explored but society angles thoroughly covered.
