Here are some data from it did not have a photo because my grandma has destroyed everything that I can not get to know him.
his name is Sam Kirby he's from Cleveland / Ohio and has worked here in Landstuhl as a chef, he would now have as the 75YEARS be., it would mean a lot to me if I could learn something, because I have my whole life trying him zufinden what unfortunately, was very difficult.The girlsname from my mother was Gertrud Flickinger they lieved in Kirchenarnbach. many thanks for your help and love greetings Christiane
sorry my english is not so good

I am completely moved by your photographs of East St. Louis. I grew up in St. Louis, Mo and spent a bit of time in my neighboring city. Your photographs are fantastic, moving, reminiscent, just GORGEOUS ART. Thank you so much for photographing this American City.
Guest 19-Aug-2012 19:53
I have fond memories of growing up in ESL,remembering how 15th Broadway was a busy place,Daughts Drug,Sykess Pharmacy,liquor store,B&F Variety, the Deluxe,record shop beauty shop,all of this when the Or Weathers was fairly new and two parent families,late on dances @ the Mary Brown Center and St Adalbert. I remember K&R Market,Calif Fruit Market,Coffman's Guccionne just to name a few. We had everthing here once upon a time,never new its was an all American city until I was older.

I was born at St. Marys Hospital in East St. Louis in 1935. We lived on Virginia Place in Alta Sita, it was such a beautiful neighborhood. Went to Alta Sita Grade School, still remember all of my teachers who were so good and dedicated. Our neighbors were great. Went to Clark Jr. High and East Side (go Flyers) loved the football games at Parsons Field and all the dances after the games. What a great city East St. Louis was to grow up in. I will always have fond memories.
Nancy (Fuchs) Hurst 14-Jul-2012 00:26
I grew up in E St. Louis. I Went to St. Patrick's grade school and St. Theresa's Acad. for high school. I lived on north 32nd St. just a block or two from Price's what a great place to hang out. My mother and I used to go downtown and shop all the time. There were great stores like Grant's Seidel's Wallgreen's several good jewelry stores the majestic theater. Many fond memories, It was a great place to live and very safe. I moved in 1970 and it was still safe. There were lots of hard working people some rich, some average, some poor, but all hard working nonviolent people who were proud of where the lived and happy there. There are still a lot of good people in E. St. Louis who are trying to make a difference. I wish them all the luck in the world. Ihope it can come back to the way it was. I wish you could post some pictures of how it used to be, and show how nice it really was.

Came across this site about East St. Louis and seen the name Don Reeves mentioned. I also lived on 35th and State early 1950's to about 1963. Don Reeves had a brother Dick and a sister Linda. His mom used to throw a block party at Halloween. Would love to hear from someone from that area. Went to Park.I don't ever remember it being used as high school. My dad went there in the 40's. Clark Jr. High was my back yard.

Linda 23-Jun-2011 06:22
Great Pictures. I used to live in Cincinnati. I left there in 1977. I am still facinated with the row/shot gun houses. I was doing a Google search about the history of these house when I ran across your web site. Wish you had more pictures of the enterior of some of them.
Michael Cleary 03-May-2011 18:23
Thank you, I was raised in Cincy and left there in the 80's. I often think of the city , but your photo brought back so many good memories. I've not been back there,but the revitalization those photo brought, has kindled a desire to go back and spend some time there. I was a student at Edgecliff College in the late 70's studying fine arts. I will have to find the photo of the city I tool at that time and send them to you, if I find them. Thanks again for the enjoyable time reminiscing.

Alison Moss Cincinnati Real Estate Agent22-Feb-2011 13:42
I really like the night time skyline photos very cool. I love photography of cities because it lets you into the character of the people who live there as a Real estate agent in Cincinnati I get to see many of the houses and homes all over the city and in some cases I get the see the bad photos other agents take. I wish all of my home photos looked this good. You can check out my site athttp://www.cincinnatilivinognline.com
Tony Houston. 11-Feb-2011 17:03
Thanks Jayson for this page and pictures of East. St. Louis. I have been moved by all the sad as well as wonderful memories that all the people have written about their childhood in E. ST. L. I have so many many fond and wonderful memories of the city. I could write about them for hours if not day's. Thank You again Jayson.
Delores 08-Jan-2011 06:02
I was saddened looking at the pictures of East St Louis, Illinois. I grew up there in the 50's and 60's. At one time it was a beautiful place. I remember when we could sleep with the front door opened and the screen unlocked. No one would come in to harm you. On hot nights that's the way we would sleep. I remember when downtown Collinsville avenue was boosting with business. I would smell the Spanish Peanuts and Popcorn from Sears. There was also a W.T. Grant store and Woolworths. What a great time I had as a child growing up there. What a change>>>>>>>>>>>

Jayson;I was in the 583 ambulance co. from 1963 to may of 1965.Boy from the pictures the town sure is a lot differant then when i was there.When i was there you could walk around the whole town in about twenty minets the most.Loved your pictures.
Guest 28-Nov-2010 15:47
I just had a dream about Cinci and I've never been ther...proper that is! I've seen the skyline from across the river but never actually visited the city. But, after my dream and these photos, I'm going there and may even move there from here in Calaifornia!
Aimee Haines 13-Sep-2010 11:58
I love your pictures of Landstuhl. They brought back a lot of great memories!!! I used to party at the "Shaffer Stuhb" at the bottom of the hill from the base..
Thanks

i was wondering if you remember the name of the restaraunt in Landstul Germany. It's an italian restaurant next to a bar called the red lion.

Guest 18-Jul-2010 03:53

Sherry 22-Apr-2010 22:48
You have beautiful pictures of the Roebling Suspension Bridge. It really is the city's landmark icon. Did you know that the decorative lights will not be re-installed when the painting is finished this fall if we don't raise the money to do so? More info at www.roeblingbridge.org

Pass the word! We need help!!!
Larry Walley 28-Feb-2010 17:20
I too googled Landstuhl and come upon your site ... enjoyed the pics as I perused some of the European locations I visited back in the early 70’s. I’m going to thumbnail your site and come back soon to look at other pics you’ve taken … {2nd GH (5B) / Landstuhl ’73-‘76}
ann perez 09-Jan-2010 02:12
I love your photos of East St. Louis. I'm sad for the residents because the politicians and city officials are responsible for what has happened. I wish there could be a comeback, especially for the hard working, honest people. I grew up in Alton, IL. Have you ever been there to take pictures?
Bob Beresford 12-Dec-2009 04:14
Jayson,
Tonight I entered Landstuhl in computer and came up with your great pictures. Stationed there in 1970 in 8th Finance Secton. Lived in building next to the tower where I worked with all German Nationals. Great little town at that time and I traveled extensively.
Went back twice during the 70's. Thanks for the pic,s
Cincy Bob the Bookkeeper
Guest 21-Nov-2009 05:25
Love the pictures!! I too was born in Landstuhl in 1966..MY goal is to go back one day and see it as an adult..it truly looks beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing!
carlinmcg30-Sep-2009 17:09
Jayson: The pictures of Landstuhl are beautiful! My father, along with wife and eight kids were stationed there in the early sixties as well. My youngest sister was born there. Do you recall the last name McGinnis? We lived a few buildings down from the elementary school. I did go back in the '80s and loved it, did more touring around and really enjoyed Heidelberg (sp?). Thanks for the memories. Christine
Louis J. Apuzzio 23-Sep-2009 10:38

Jean 19-Sep-2009 01:47
Beautiful pictures but you should have more of Canada your neighbor. Montreal and Quebec City are both worth your trips believe me. Especially as a photographer. Vancouver and Victoria British Columbia Canada are also very scenic. Come up and visit us.

Your neighbour.

Richard McElveen 03-Sep-2009 02:49
I was commander of the weather detachment at Ramstein from 1977-1981. We lived "up the hill just a little ways" at N. 9 Luitpoldstrasse, across the street from the Catholic Church (with BELL!..every hour...24 hrs a day!) for 4 years. Wonderful neighborhood and wonderful neighbors, once we shared the cherries from the three trees in our back yard with them. Actually, Martha made pies and took them to the neighbors! Then they quit complaining about our teenage son and daughter playing badminton in the yard on Sundays. (Any noise activities were verboten on Sundays.) We loved Landstuhl and the people. Plan to go back again next year. I retired a little over 20 yrs ago at MacDill, USSOCOM.

Jayson,

It would be nice if you would show the changes that have been made in East St. Louis not just the areas that have not yet been revitalized.
Jayson08-Dec-2007 04:02
Thank you for the kind words Rhonda. Other than the "third party" gallery, all of the photos are exclusively from Cincy Images.

Jim Kramer12-Jul-2006 00:48
Thanks for stopping by my gallery. I came by to see your work, and I am very impressed. What an awesome collection of images. You should definitely add Spring Grove to your collection. If you are going to shoot it in color, I would wait until the fall... the colors should be AWESOME! I am planning on going back there myself in October to get some Autumn shots to add to my gallery. Later! -Jim K.
Jan M. Stenman11-Jul-2006 20:28
Hi Jayson,
I lived in Cincinnati from 2001-2003. Looking at your pics I wish I had picked up photography as a hobby already at that time. The Cincinnati skyline is very beautiful (with the lights and the river, hills etc) and you have done a great job capturing all of this. I particularly enjoyed your skyline gallery.
Best regards,
Jan

Hunter Prince 23-Mar-2006 03:33
Great site!!! Iam looking at moveing there pretty soon. I have been trying to find pictures with good detail and with the many locations around Cincinnati. I tried many other sites and they dont even compare. Thanks for the great insight to the city.
Jayson22-Feb-2006 23:37
Charles, thank you for the feedback. I had a feeling some people would get confused that the photos are not linked to the search capability. The reason why the search feature doesn't return photos from the gallery is because the photos are currently hosted on another site. In time I hope to have the site completely intergrated.
Charles Dorris 22-Feb-2006 22:44
Yours is a great site, and I thank you for it. Photography is outstanding. However, more narrative comments (or any, for that matter) would have added to my pleasure and instructed me. For instance, I searched and searched for pictures of the Music Hall, as I have long admired the Cincinnati Symphony, Pops, May Festival, etc. When I finally "Goodgled" it and got some direct info., I realized I had seen it in your OTR pages, and not recognized it. It looked like a church, and seemed a surprising venue for such distinguished, internationally famous groups.
I have recently had my interest piqued because a member of my family is working in a hospital there (Childrens) and I may be able to visit sometime.
bernard 16-Feb-2006 21:57
Cincy transplant living in Seattle just wanted to say your pictures are wonderful. Maybe shots of the Mt. Healthy, Colerain, North College Hill, Union Centre would be welcome.

Joel 22-Aug-2005 20:12
Indeed I must say that I enjoyed yet another trip to Cincinnati this weekend. We live in St. Louis, which I'd like to forget the place I call home now.

I took my wife and kid to the Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal first. Our first time there. WOW! What a great use of space. There was plenty of parking and we were just wishing we had time to visit all 5 museums. I was just amazed at the Union Terminal architecture and the 1920s feel to it all. And we could've spent the whole day there because it was intriguing to think we could do so much in one place. There were tons of people there yet it didn't feel so crowded. Everything seemed to belong there; there was a continuity to the museum and nostalgic feel. On the other hand, St. Louis Union Station turned their old train station into a hotel/mall/food court. The problem is the good stores & eateries (Disney Store, Kriegers) don't last and there isn't anything there to keep my attention for a whole day or much beyond an hour lunch break. I couldn't help comparing the two cities because being in Cincinnati was so refreshing. My son loved the natural history museum and we promised him we'd take him back to the rest before the Space exhibit closes October 12.

We left the museum center to Fountain Square. We parked under Fountain Square for a dollar - all day Saturday/Sunday is $1 here. We walked around Fountain Square and felt as if Mother Nature was personally welcoming us to the Queen City. We took pictures around the fountain and walked a couple blocks to find lunch (we didn't have time to climb up to the Carew Tower for a rooftop skyline view of the whole city). My wife admired the Sachs 5th Avenue and the Macy's (a rock's throw from Fountain Square).

We found Skyline Chili, where we got some famous Cincinnati Chili, which we all liked (it's hard to please everyone's palate, but I got mad props from my wife and kid for picking this place). And we also found a Graeter's Ice Cream downtown on the same street. We walked to the ballpark from there - here I'd like to make a point that the streets were clean and paved and the steet signs were easy to see (they are backlit and user-friendly with address numbers, i.e. Fourth Street, 200-299). Not once did I trip over a pothole. And not once was I accosted for a stinkin' quarter.

On to the Reds Hall of Fame & Museum. I got an emotional high when I waxed nostalgic on the Cincinnati Reds memorabilia that I grew up admiring. My family enjoyed the interactive baseball-themed exhibits, especially the home run wall, the pitching simulator and the 4,256 baseballs on the wall representing Pete Rose's career hits. There is a movie in there too that is a must see for every Reds and baseball fan. They gave us $3 admission with a same-day game ticket. The end of the tour takes you down the staircase into the Reds gift shop, a la Disney World. But then on to Great American Ball Park. It was easy to like this stadium with it's wide open concourses, clean presentation and memoirs of the Reds great moments in baseball history surrounding you. We sat in the bleacher seats which are the cheapest tickets in the house and low to the left-field wall and actually have backs to the seats. We had a good view of the game, all except for the left field scoreboards and jumbotron. We walked around the stadium to see more of the riverfront and to cool off with the water mister underneath the Pepsi Power Stacks.

The game was actually interesting and we found it easy to get back on the highway to our final destination for the night. I told my wife we would come back next year for our annual summer trip and she was like, "just one trip a year?" :)

Great photographs.
Stumbled upon this site from the travel log you have. I couldn't see all the photographs on it because either my ISP or 'puter didn't have enough memory to display them. Will you be adding them to this site?
I wanted to tell you the photo of Rainbow Bridge (in the Niagara Falls group) was phenominal! Awesome view! Memorable.
