The Jones Family in Cincinnati has been anchored to the Ohio River and the boats that have traveled her since the 1840's. It is our legacy -- one we hope to pass on to our children and grandchildren.

It's Done with Ropes
From The News, May-June 1946, p. 17.
The News was a bi-monthly publication of the Cincinnati Transit Company, aka "the bus company." My Dad, John Thomas Jones, worked in the "car barn" where his father was the foreman. This picture was taken one year after Dad served in England during World War II. Eventually he would become a mechanic, and later, an electrician. The picture in the magazine had more detail that the one I was able to reproduce, but you get the idea. I love it when someone comes up with a simple solution to a problem they face -- as this one was. Dad would have been 25 at the time of this picture.
