1,688 views chronicles the 200 year history of Cincinnati's main shipyard with over 900 steamboats built in the 1800's, making it the loudest spot in the country. This industry spawned thousands of jobs and local businesses as diverse as machine tooling and department stores. The high water port with rail and barge services shippers of metal and lumber for the regions's houses, offices, appliances and automobiles. Mark Twain and Currier and Ives heralded The Natchez - built by Marine Railways on this site. It faced off against The Robert E. Lee in "The Great Race" of 1870.
