"Humor in History or How Could a City Nicknamed 'Porkopolis' be Anything but Funny" by Robert J. Wimberg
Saturday, April 1, at 11 am in the Genealogy and Local History Program Space, Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County Main Library
"From its original name of Losantiville to Mrs. Trollope's Bazaar to August Herrmann's love for wursts, German fried potatoes and baseball, Cincinnati has provided the stuff to make us smile if not burst out laughing. From a trained bear that escaped the People’s Theater in Over-the-Rhine to beer suds popping sewer lids, our town has hundreds of humorous stories that are a part of its history."This program is sponsored by the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County.
