Cincinnati hidden history - Abigail Street sign at 12th & Spring

Earlier in the 20th century (not sure what the exact date is), streets east of Main Street in OTR had names instead of numbers. This is one of a few places I have found where the original name still shows, engraved in a building: 12th Street used to be Abigail Street. This name change is not related to other name changes during the anti-German hysteria of 1918.
