Sidney, Ohio


Sidney, Ohio was founded in 1819 with the donation of seventy arces, located by the Great Miami River by Charles Starrett. From 1840 to 1913, the Miami Erie Canal made Sidney a town of trade and export.

As use of the canals declined, railroads developed continuing this tradition. The development of the Interstate System in the 1950s, took over as Sidney’s main transportation outlet. In 1964 it earned the title of “All-American City.”

Equipment:  Large format 4"x5" camera.
Film was hand developed, scanned and digitally edited.

Thanks so much to Anna Martinovich and Devon Selzer for all the help caring the equipment from location to location!
