Episode #5: John A. Roebling Bridge

On the fifth episode of The UrbanCincy Podcast, we listen to a talk given by Clifford W. Zink, titled Public Works Should Educate Public Taste: John A. Roebling’s Design of the Cincinnati-Covington Bridge. The talk, given at the Society for Industrial Archeology 2012 annual conference, provides an interesting look at both John A. Roebling and the bridge that now bears his name. C. W. Zink is an historic preservation consultant and author of several books, including The Roebling Legacy.

On the following episode of the podcast, we will bring you the final part of this series on Cincinnati landmarks. The third installment is Arthur A. Hupp’s talk, Historic Cincinnati Union Terminal: Restoration and Renovation Master Plan. The first installment, posted last week, was Jake Mecklenborg’s talk on Cincinnati’s Incomplete Subway.

    • Sorry, it has been difficult obtaining the slide presentations that go along with these talks. If we are able to get them, we will post them. I believe that you and the other listeners are still getting a lot of good info from the audio recordings.
