These images definitely need some dates, labels, and etc to establish where they are coming from.

What is on the photo or what I have posted about the photos is all I know, I'm sure others can chime in and help fill things in.

Thanks for not waiting until I was done to post.

Nice post. Thanks. It's weird seeing places you drive by almost everyday and how much they've changed over the years.

Until I spied the "Kurt's" sign in the Colerain Ave pic I'd never seen a "pony keg" sign ON a pony keg!
And the sketch of the "sick" car - complete with Western Hills High School pennant - served as a reminder that not too long ago your neighborhood gas station was operated by somebody local. Every Sohio station had a sign bearing its proprietor's name above the office door. ("Sohio? Huh?" It was short for Standard Oil of Ohio, to differentiate from "Esso" - the letters "S" and "O" - in other states. Then Esso became Exxon and Sohio was spun off and became part of British Petroleum. That's right, today's BP station was probably once a Sohio dealer.)
Despite all the development and sprawl along Colerain you can still get a "country" vibe if you make a left onto "Old" Colerain where the road widens into a divided limited-access highway. The Diefenbacher farm looks the same as it ever did, complete with the market building which probably hasn't been open since the '80s and faces Kemper Rd. Back in the day, the tiny village surrounding the Colerain/Kemper intersection was commonly referred to as Dunlap. "Going to Dunlap" meant it was time to drive through Greenhills to where Winton Rd started to follow a twisting northwesterly path. (After the "new" Winton Rd to 275 was completed the winding part was dead-ended and renamed Lincolnshire.) Nothing but an 1800's brick house marked when you reached Kemper, from which you'd proceed west through mostly fields and woods to your destination - the crowded parking lot of Diefenbacher's Farm Market. Suppers soon thereafter would include freshly harvested corn and other veggie goodness. (I've never again eaten lima beans as tasty as the ones from Dunlap.) And, right along with cooler nights and the start of school the appearance of apple cider at Diefenbacher's was a sure sign of summer's end. Just as with the lima beans, the taste of freshly-pressed cider poured from a big glass jug will never be duplicated. For now at least, the only viable commercial enterprise in Dunlap is the Vinoklet Winery. The onetime Dunlap Fire Dept opposite the Diefenbacher property is now a Colerain Township district station. With nearly all traffic shunted onto the rerouted 27 the powers that be have yet to see the need for putting up a traffic light. So, 2014 or not, there's at least one bucolic pocket of Hamilton County left. For that we have one of the corporations "everybody" loves to hate to thank. The 19th-century house and the original Winton Rd may have been obliterated by Forest Park forty years ago and development may have crept farther west. But what's stopping Dunlap from being taken over by big-box stores, strip malls, apartment complexes, etc isn't its distance from things. Nobody in their right mind wants property that's within smelling if not visual range of "Mount Rumpke."
One last note this time: Seeing all the trolley tracks in some of the pics, especially along the lower deck of the Western Hills Viaduct, served as yet another reminder of how good mass transit in Cincinnati used to be.
