Modern  Chromes



    The modern Photo chrome-style postcard first appeared in 1939 with the Union Oil Company carrying them in their western service stations. During World War II the production of these cards was slowed due to the shortage of supplies, but after the war, they dominated the postcard market. These cards are the closest to real photographs and the ones most familiar to us today. You will see some stunning views of Cincinnati in many of these cards. There will be no attempt to describe what you are looking at as these images are not from 50 to 100 years age but what can be seen now. Of course Riverfront Stadium, (known as Cinergy Field the last few years), which is probably seen in 80% of these cards has been imploded already to make room for the new Ball Park and the new Paul Brown Football Stadium has already been built, so even these cards are showing images that no longer exist. As the saying goes, "The only thing permanent in life is change itself". These cards are all  4"x  6" continental cards.

   This larger than normal (5" x 7 1/2") postcard is not a continental card but it is obviously the same image as the card above so its placement seems obvious.

Paul Brown Stadium can be seen under construction on the left side of the third card above.

   The card above was probably made in 1994 because the Central Bridge has been demolished and is missing.
