On the city Website, a small drawing of the monument forms the logo of the city, but the monument itself is not mentioned or pictured anywhere.  Formerly, the Pictures page had a photo of the monument, oddly identified as "Bicentennial Clock Tower".

A Cincinnati news article gives some of the background of the Memorial.

An engineering page has a large photo at the top of the page and three more photos at the bottom, plus a brief description.

Near the bottom of a visitor's trip log are two interesting photos of the monument; click on them for larger versions.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Petit & Fritsen bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
