(Copyright Mel Steinhauer all rights reserved) As our country expanded westward from the original 13 colonies, rivers became primary forms of travel. Cincinnati was founded on the Ohio River near the Little Miami and the Great Miami Rivers in 1788. It quickly became our 1st major inland city that rivaled east coast cities in size and wealth. In 1853, Cincinnati became the 1st U.S. city to have a paid full-time fire department and in 1869 the Cincinnati Red-Stockings were the 1st professional baseball team. The Reds even played the 1st major league night baseball game here at the old Crosley Field. In 2003 they named the new baseball stadium the Great American Ballpark and in 2011 the new Great American Tower became Cincinnati's tallest building. In July 2012 the largest steamboat ever built, The American Queen, stopped by for another visit. There are many more reasons why Cincinnati is truly an ... All American City.
I created this image from my original photograph taken on location by adding digital enhancements, textures or other effects. These effects and image details will become more visible by clicking inside the green magnifier square as the cursor is placed over the image.
PLEASE NOTE: Our professional printing facilities have a feature for customers who desire artwork prepared for them to be in standard sizes such as 8 x 10, 11 x 14, 16 x 20, 24 x 30, 36 x 24 and so on. When you select your image to purchase, from the SIZE tab choose a VERTICAL, HORIZONTAL or SQUARE format. Notice that some portions of my original image may not be included in these cropped formats. The NATURAL format is the way I composed the image in camera or during final processing. Sometimes this would create an image size which required the use of non-standard mats or frames. So go ahead and see for yourself, by viewing my images in these new formats to decide which one may (or may not) best suit your needs or style of wall art. Of course, you may always choose the NATURAL format and purchase my art as it was originally composed and created.
Many thanks and best wishes!
