One hundred years of architectural sediment is in the process of being peeled away at 221 W 4th. St. The building was always beautiful from the waist up and if it is restored down to the sidewalk will now be good looking in its entirety.
A quick Google search revealed;
"Andries Nielen was a photographer who traveled the world in the 1920s taking photographs which he then made into postcards. He had a publishing company for many years in downtown Cincinnati at 221-223 W. 4th Street known as The A. Nielen Co. They were known as a publisher and importer of cheap and fast selling ten cent serial books. Nielen almost always typed little gems of wisdom on the back of his postcards."
