The bridge to the far left is a railroad bridge, used every year at the WEBN Labor Day weekend fireworks That's where they shoot off the waterfall fireworks and other displays The Purple People Bridge was built later

#10-They tore it down in the 90s (92?) and replaced it with a boxier truss bridge And yes that's the Purple People Bridge Having been born in the mid 90s, I'm so used to Newport of the Levee being on top of the literal levee, seeing just the patch of grass between is weird to me brAnd to add on, as you probably already knew it's the bridge in the #3 photo and it carried US 27 over the mighty Ohio (at least I think it did, its replacement does)

The actress who starred in the 1977 New York revival of "Pal Joey", the great Joan Copeland, celebrated her 99th birthday on June 1Lord willing, she turns 100 years old in 363 days! Just thought you would like to know and I love videos of my town Cincy (even though I live in Columbus)!

I know it isn't, but the end of scene #10 reminds me of looking NW up the Ohio River at Rabbit Hash towards Rising Sun

#1 is downtown Dayton, Ohio looking EAST from US35 at the I75 junction The building under construction was called the Winter's Bank Tower (named for the family of comedian Johnathan Winters) The Winters Bank Building was completed in 1971 It is, to this day, the tallest building in Dayton

Erich Griessmann
The #2 Clip is the eastbound ramp on Ft Washington Way coming from I-75 south bound You were looping in front of the city over 3rd street headed east The #5 clip is just looking south off the ramp that takes you up to Mt Adams The last slide is the old Broadway Bridge, now blown up and replaced by Taylor Southgate Bridge The one on the far left is the Purple People Bridge
Comment from : Erich Griessmann


Mike Snyder
I just love looking at these scenes of Dayton and Cincinnati from way back when! As an aside, I remember the first time I was ever on I-75 Was late 1950's and I was in the back seat of my uncle's car fast asleep All of a sudden, we were speeding down a highway somewhere in the Franklin, OH area I had no clue there was such a thing as an interstate highway and it dumped us out south of Kettering Also, I remember there being signage to the effect that the interstate highway system was to be used for the cause of national defense! At least that is what I think I remembered! LOL

4 and 5 is CincinnatiColumbia parkwayexit ramp goes to mount adams
Comment from : Jon Cassidy


Mike Snyder
#1 definitely Dayton and, as stated below by several, going east on US 35 (just SW of and across the Miami River from downtown) At the very end of the shot one can see I-75 (both ways) and, on the extreme left (just before the fade out), I think it is Standard Register (where my Grandpa worked) Definitely recognize the old Bell Telephone building (where my Aunt worked) and, way off in the distance, Grandview Hospital again, I think Love this stuff! Thanks for posting!

I've been looking for a photo of the big Pluto that used to be painted on the side of the Hudepohl building in the late 70's-early 80's

Dennis Lyons
Number ten looks like the bridge going from Cincinnati to Kentucky before I75 went through but I might be wrong but I know that is the Ohio River
Comment from : Dennis Lyons


sparkytdg
2 looks like Ft Washington Way before the change around, and that was when Riverfront Stadium was brand new 5, I am pretty sure it is, those tracks ran both east and west in town for about 100 years
Comment from : sparkytdg


RudolphBlueDog
In the 70s, 2 was called Riverfront Stadium, not Cinergy Field

dseifert
#4 I believe is called Martin Drive It's the ramp from Columbia Parkway East to Mt Adams
Comment from : dseifert


discolemonade66
I believe you are right That looks like the old ramp to 35 east Not there anymore in that form The west bound side would end just passed the underpass I agree about "Riverfront" I have film of its implosion I need to convert and put up That was a bad day for me
Comment from : discolemonade66


Jiltedin2007
Yeah, back when the "Old Cinergy Field" was Riverfront Stadium!

No, the Reds moved into Riverfront during the 1970 season The 1970 All-Star game was there
Comment from : Brian Gordon


Doug4422
In 1970, the Reds were still playing baseball at Crosley Field, they did not move to Riverfront Stadium until the 1971 season

#2 Riverfront Stadium - the home of the Reds
Comment from : JJ W


pennsy6000
In 1970, The Purple People Bridge belonged to the L & N railroad Trains form the Penn Central also crossed the bridge It also had a road crossing on one side as well and the center for the bridge for foot traffic Rail Traffic over the bridge ceased in 1987 with the road traffic soon to follow due to the age of the bridge I believe it was built in the early 1880's, but don't take my word on that

Comment from : Sir V


fondoftheduh
@fondoftheduh Oh,I see the image isn't right that is not the real Chaperon river boat
Comment from : fondoftheduh


fondoftheduh
@eddieboyes strange?! In 1906, the US Army Corps of Engineers built the Green River Lock and Dam 6, just downstream from Kentucky’s Mammoth Cave Chaperon was the first boat of its kind to pass through the new locks In addition to hauling cargo, she ran sightseeing excursions between Bowling Green and Mammoth Cave during the summer months Sold just before WWI, Chaperon sailed the Tallahatchie River until fire destroyed her in 1922

#1 is downtown Dayton showing the Kettering Tower being built #2 is Riverfront Stadium from Columbisa Parkway #9 is the Public Landing just below where Riverfront Coliseum would be built in 1975
Comment from : Kevin V


Tim Burke
#4 &#5 are Columbia Parkway headed east out of downtown #4 shows the off ramp towards Mt Adams and Eden Park #5 is looking over the river from that same offramp #3 is also Columbia Parkway / Ft Washington Way headed towards #4 the last building in that shot still stands just before the entrance to I471 south into KY
Comment from : Tim Burke


Eddie Boyes
@montegomadness Yes, I now think it's taken from somewhere on the the curving ramp from I-75S to Rt-35E Thanks
Comment from : Eddie Boyes


montegomadness
#1 is Dayton Appears to be travelling eastbound on US 35, looking out the driver's side to the north as you pass over I75 and passing downtown Dayton #2 I believe would be west bound on Fort Washington way, the stadium was then called Riverfront (always Riverfront to me, I refused to call it Cinergy Field) #5 I believe would be Columbia Parkway eastbound, just east of downtown Cincinnati
Comment from : montegomadness


jpmagg3
#1 is definitely Dayton, probably around the I-75 Rt 35 interchange#5 is going up Martin drive off Columbia Parkway (eastbound) to Mt Adams; the railroad cars at the end are in the former PRR/L&N RR Oasis interchange yard - now a city park with one seldom-used track
Comment from : jpmagg3


Eddie Boyes
@blgjaa Yes, I've recently looked on Google 'views' and, although the 'look' and 'perspective' are very different (probably due to focal length and colour), the same houses can be seen
Comment from : Eddie Boyes


Brian Gordon
Yeah, #6 sure does look like Hatch, given the houses, the street sign that briefly pops into the frame on the right (Belvedere? Fuller?) and Kentucky in the distance (I worked nearby and lived on Hatch over 30 years ago!)
Comment from : Brian Gordon


Eddie Boyes
Yes, thanks And it would seem (from Google maps) that the junction of I-75 and I-71 at that point is probably much more complicated now than it was in 1970 (?) It's hard for me (here in the UK) to assess - particularly as, in Google views, the link from I-75(S) to 2nd St is the only part of the junction that doesn't have any 'view'
Comment from : Eddie Boyes


FiberMania
#2 looks like Southbound I75 exiting on snd or 3rd street?
Comment from : FiberMania


Eddie Boyes
@joeywitt I wonder what ever happened to the Chaperon? I have a little more footage of the Majestic, but it doesn't show anything different (closer view of boat and grainy view of 'Pal Joey' on stage)
Comment from : Eddie Boyes


Joey Witterstaetter
#10 yes that bridge in the distance is the purple people bridge and i work on the majestic and wow she looked beautiful back then!

@donkey4152 Thanks donkey4152 Now I need to go into Google Street Views and try and work out which road it's from Any help gratefully received
Comment from : Eddie Boyes


Eddie Boyes
Thanks bandit957 - I can now see from Google views that #4 is almost certyainly the Martin Dr ramp
Comment from : Eddie Boyes


bandit957
I'm pretty sure scene #4 is the ramp from Columbia Parkway to Martin Drive
