I love connecting past history into modern times. This video shows the clues of the train station at the intersection of the track and Burney lane in Cincinnati, Ohio. This was the former Interurban / Suburban track of the CGPR, the Cincinnati Georgetown and Portsmouth Railroad at the Ellenora / Cedar Point station. Also know as CG&P. Included in the video the history of the main building of Humboldt Park, its glory and fate during the prohibition and its conversion into an apartment building, still standing today.
You see in order:

The train station had three names: Shinn's Grove, Cedar Point and finally Ellenora (due to the confusion with Cedar Point on Lake Erie).
