Lenhardt's Restaurant. 151 W. McMillan St. Clifton A Recent Photo
In the 1880's Christian Moerlein built a home at 151 West McMillan as a wedding gift for his daughter, who had married John Goetz. The Lenhardt's Restaurant moved into the Goetz house in 1965. The restaurant has now been razed (1-4-14) to make room for an apartment building.
Canary Cottage. 420 Walnut Street
The two real photo postcards above show the Venice Pavilion. It was located on Colerain Pike near Ross, Ohio in Butler County. This is a little further away from Cincinnati than I normally collect but I had the opportunity to obtain them and they have great views of the automobiles of the era.

I flipped the center card above around so you would not have to stand on your head to view it on this double-card.
EDWARDS MANUFACTURING COMPANY
These are not postcards
Edwards 529 E. Fifth Street
The Edwards Manufacturing Co. was a leading maker of sheet metal roofing, among other things, and was located near the foot of the Mt. Adams Incline. The plant was located along Eggleston Ave. between 4th & 5th Sts. The RPPC on the left in the second row shows the plant. It opened in 1875 but when it ceased operations I am not sure (1950s?). Eventually the main plant was demolished and made into a parking lot. The lot can be seen in the top row of photographic images. The remainder not torn down (administrative offices?) can be seen in the very narrow building in these photos. This address is now 529 E. 5th St. and was turned into the restaurant seen in the two postcards in the 2nd row called Edwards for obvious reasons. Edwards has since closed and I don't know who occupies the building now.

203 Mill Street in Milford
The Millcroft Inn located at 203 Mill Street in Milford is a very popular and well-known fine dining establishment for. Originally built around 1812 as a residence it has since been used as a General Store, a warehouse during the Civil War and even as a bordello at one time. It began operation as the Gillcroft in 1939 as a tea room. When it became the Millcroft I do not know. The 5th card above is for a display of artwork by Grace M. Hunt that was shown in 1958 at the Inn. The last non-postcard image is a present day view.

The photograph below shows the very first Frisch's Drive-in that was constructed in 1939 in Fairfax. It was called the Mainliner after a tri-motor passenger airplane that had landed at Lunken Airfield. The very first Big Boy sandwich was sold here in 1946. The first Big Boy Drive-in was on Central Parkway in 1948. The building has undergone many changes, but "Big Boy One" remains the same. The very first Frisch's Restaurant in Cincinnati was in 1905. Samuel Frisch opened a small cafe in downtown Cincinnati on Freeman Ave. As of 2010, including franchises, there were 118 Big Boy Restaurants in operation.
