Slightly off-topic: 1848 views of Cincinnati

I realize this is not a pure "Civil War" post, but I think this is a neat story, and it may be the only photographs to show what the riverfront area of this city - an important trade stop on the Ohio River and around the 6th largest city in the country at time - looked like. Surely it had changed somewhat by the time 1861 rolled around, but perhaps not terribly much
