Hanauer Road Book

January 9, 2017

Map page from the Hanauer Road Book compiled by William D. Kempton, of the Porkopolis Wheelmen in 1911. There are many recognizable landmarks and streets shown here. It’s interesting to note that the Garfield Monument gets special mention. This statue for years has been the place for Cincinnati area cyclists to rendezvous for their rides.  This guide likely began as his Vest Pocket Guide to Cincinnati and Vicinity published in 1892.
