    I take exception to the 1929 date for the above photograph of the McMicken Ave.-Vine St. intersection. According the Wright and Wagner, Cincinnati Streetcar history, volume No. 6, page 297, the Ohio Legislature passed a law outlawing open streetcars after 1920. There is the possibility of a typo, a 2 instead of a 1 in the date. However, based on the length of the women’s dresses and style of autos, I suggest that the date is about 1915.
