Historical Model of Procter & Gamble - Cincinnati, Ohio

Good morning,

Today's images are of a model of the Procter & Gamble Company at the Cincinnati Museum Center.  The blur in the front of this image is a train moving through the display.  I'm shooting through glass without a flash, but I am glad I took the images.
I remember when P&G looked like this in the 1960's.  My father worked for the company for 38 years so I visited the offices when I was a child.  At the beginning of his time there in the 1920's he remembered when Colonel Procter, son of the founder, walked through the office. 
Dad also arranged for tours for my school of the soap production. 
These buildings bring back fond memories for me.  Now P&G's international headquarters are in downtown Cincinnati and these buildings carry the sign "St. Bernard Soap Company."  We live about five minutes away near Xavier University.

Enjoy,
Lois

Being a history buff, I enjoyed this one. I think Procter and Gamble is to Cincinnati, what Kodak was to Rochester. . . notice I said "was". Sadly Kodak is dying a slow, painful death.

A wonderful bit of history! If you are ever in Golden Colorado, the train museum there has a huge inside train set up with completely towns built.

Loved this series. Well done photography. At first I was fooled with what I thought was a real scene!!

I bet it was a huge, and busy place...which their new place probably is, too. I have used enough of their products in my life...all good stuff.
