This is another map drawn in 1888 which will help in locating the various streets and most of the railroad depots that were affected by the 1913 flood. There were many changes between 1888 and 1913 but this should give you a rough idea of locations.
DAMAGE TO RAILROAD DEPOTS
Penn. R. R. depot Penn. baggage room Big 4 R. R. Terminals Big 4 R. R. Freight Depot
The damage caused by this flood caused food prices to rise as farm products could not reach the city and all the produce already in the depots were destroyed by the water. Butter and eggs became scarce and potato prices tripled as they were seized by towns along the tracks desperate for food. The Penn. R. R. Depot above is the L. M. Depot on the map (Little Miami). The Big Four is the Grand Central Depot on the map.
West End R. R. Yards C. H. & D. Depot View from C. & O. Bridge
The C. & O. bridge view would be the C. H. & D. Freight Depot (I think). The West End R. R. Yards show the Louisville & Nashville Freight Depot.
Queen & Crescent Depot
The Queen & Crescent freight depot (CNO&TP) can be seen at the corner of Front And Vine Streets with flood waters up to the 2nd floor. The newly constructed Union Central Life Insurance building can be seen in the background. The 2nd & 3rd images are not postcards, I am showing them here for a better look at this depot..
Freight Yards Freight Terminals
These two freight yards have to be part of the Grand Central Depot complex.

1913 FLOOD R. F. JOHNSTON PAINT CO.
The R. F. Johnston Paint Company at the corner of Pearl and Main Street obviously saw a possible gold mine of positive advertising of its product in this disaster occurring on its own premises. Written on the backs of a couple of them is the following: "The Mail, Telegraph and Transportation facilities of Cincinnati and vicinity have been greatly impaired by floods since March 25th. If there is an apparent delay in writing you, it is entirely due to this cause and not to inattention on our part". The Johnston Paint store covered an entire block with its warehouse across the street. The card in the center of the second row shows the company's employees filling orders from a boat to a horse cart.
