Pigs in Downtown Cincinnati
While we were in downtown Cincinnati for My Honey's birthday dinner I took some pictures of these terrific pigs that have been a part of the city scene for some years now.
Cincinnati long ago got the nickname "Porkopolis" because of all of the meat packing companies here. Then we became the home of flying pigs because of all of the pigs that went to heaven from those meat packing companies. (Time to chuckle here.) The story of the Porkopolis and Cincinnati Flying Pigs is here for those of you who want to know the whole truth. Inquiring minds want to know, you know!
I took many of these pictures as we were walking. We plan to return for more pictures soon.
All the best,
More history of the Tyler Davidson Fountain is here.
