A collection of negatives and prints that gives you a look into Cincinnati's past is going on the Web.  Work begins today at the University of Cincinnati Libraries to digitize 8,000 images that include both interior and exterior shots of homes and city scenes from 1920 to 1956.   They were taken as part of the city's failed subway development and also to document various street projects. 

Kevin Grace, the head of UC's Archives and Rare Books Library where the collection resides, says the pictures give a crystal clear image of the city during that time.

Baby on board

Proud mom, Wilhelmina.

The sign says it all.   

You've got to look really closely, but it is amazing to see this tiny sifaka (SEE-fah-kah) clinging to its mother's chest.  The baby boy weighed just slightly more than three ounces when it was born September 3 to mother Wilhelmina and father Rinaldo at the Cincinnati Zoo.

The baby, which hasn't been named yet, will continue to cling to the front of its mother for the first few weeks, and eventually move onto her back for the next six months.  It'll take a year for it to reach full maturity.
