What are we talking about today?

Some days have themes. I don't necessarily post something in each of these topic areas every week.

Sunday: Church-related or spiritual things.

Q is for Queen #AtoZChallenge

Join me on the A to Z Challenge: I'll share a different thing from my new home, Cincinnati, every day for 26 days in April.

Wikipedia says cities that are large/influential/etc. in a region, but are not the capital of the region, are often nicknamed "queen city." That being the case, it makes sense that Ohio's boom town of the 1800s would have been called the Queen City. Whatever the cause, it's a name that's certainly stuck.

Given that I sing pretty much all the time, this shouldn't be a problem.
Just because I haven't heard a definitive answer on this one doesn't keep it being appropriated for local landmarks and city tours.

Isn't this fabulous? If being the Queen City gets public art this great,
then correct as usual, Your Majesty.
