Cincinnati Goes to War at Union Terminal

During a May 23 media event in which the Cincinnati Museum Center announced that it was seeking to expand its status as a National Historic Landmark to recognize Union Terminal's contributions during World War II, I had a chance to explore Cincinnati Goes to War: A Community Responds to WWII.

On view now in the Cincinnati History Museum, the exhibit shows through artifacts, photos and scenery the contributions that Cincinnatians made on the home front to help the Allies win the war.

A restored streetcar is also on display!

The 26 photos in this slideshow have been added to the Cincinnati Union Terminal photo gallery.

Hover over the slideshow to bring up the controls. You may stop the slideshow by clicking on the square "stop" button, allowing you to scroll through the photos at your own leisure. To get a better view, click on each image to enlarge to 800 x 600. Photos will open in a new browser window.
