Sears, Roebuck & Co.
Cincinnati, OH
This former Sears, Roebuck & Co. department store built in 1929. It was used in recent years as the University of Cincinnati Campus Services Building. It appeared to be vacant when these photos were taken in 2012. In 2016, the building was altered. The walls on the sides were extended and the round corners eliminated on the south side. The projecting ground level entrance on the north side was eliminated. The front facade and tower were preserved. [map]

Klosterman Baking Company
Cincinnati, OH
The Klosterman Baking Company was established in Cincinnati in 1880. This building appears to be from the 1930s or so. [map]

Lunken Airport
Cincinnati, OH
Lunken Airport was established as an airfield in 1925. The airport was dedicated in 1930. I believe this building is from 1937. The Sky Galley restaurant closed in 1996 and reopened as Wings restaurant. It then became the Sky Galley again in 1999. I don't know if this sign was adapted or if it was just built in a vintage style. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

The Kellogg's Building was built for the Strietmann Biscuit Company in 1941. It was designed by John H. Deeken. [map]

former Union Terminal
Cincinnati, OH

The former Union Terminal, built in 1933, brought together seven railroad companies. The terminal closed in 1972 and in 1980 it was briefly used as a shopping center. The Art Deco masterpiece reopened in 1990 as the Museum Center which is a complex featuring the Museum of Natural History, the Historical Society Museum and Library, the Children's Museum and the OMNIMAX Theater.
