A strip of Dayton postcards, back in the day  

This is my hometown, a decade or so before I showed up.

The public library. I got my first card here, before the structure was torn down and replaced.

 

 

Newcomb Tavern. You can still tour it, though it’s been moved to Carillon Park.

 

That’s John Henry PATTERSON, the patriarchal industrial pioneer who founded the National Cash Register Company, now NCR.

 

 

The epicenter of town, right at Third and Main streets.

 

My, times have changed!

 

I knew it well.

 

Next to the art institute. My grandpa was a member, but it was secret-secret.

 

What we would now call a veterans hospital.

 

Every city has to have a skyline, right? Like right out of Hollywood?
