The Ohio River is not only a river of scenery and beauty, but also one of opportunity. It is a river of journey and exploration; a river of dreams, both personal and private; a river of commerce and enterprise. It is also a river of floods and destruction. Along the Ohio River: Cincinnati to Louisville journeys down this dynamic river. The postcard images show many riverfront scenes, from the cities along the way to excursion steamboats, river scenery, and the river at work.
