Subway construction in Miami canal bed photograph
Description: Photograph of construction of a subway in the old Miami canal bed, north of Findlay Street, Cincinnati, Ohio, ca. 1920-1928. Construction of the subway began during the construction of the Cincinnati Central Parkway over the canal bed in the early 1920s. The project was partly financed by the Ohio Dept. of Public Works. The canal bed was deepened to form the subway tube, but the rapid-transit system was never completed. View on Ohio Memory.
