Cherokee Motors & other Cincinnati pics

















A few random photos from my recent trip to Cincy. Not sure if there's a theme that runs through these pics -- well it rained a lot. And perhaps my gravitated toward the older, industrial and/or decaying side of Cincinnati. Or maybe I was just in a shitty mood (a distinct possibility). 




The top photo is my favorite. That's the old sign for Cherokee Motors on Vine Street in Carthage. The sign has been there since the '50s -- so the internet says -- and it was certainly there the entire time I was growing up in Cincy and the 'burbs. It's a used car lot now but the sign, as un-politically correct as it may be, doesn't appear to be going anywhere.
