Subject: RE: Mudcat(THE WORLD) Let us know Pt. II
hello, I'm Tucker ( Oh no! not him again!!!) and I live in Portsmouth Ohio, once the terminus of the Erie Canal. Portsmouth was once a major site of Hopewell and Adena effigy works (we still have Horseshoe Mound). Like a lot of cities that border the Ohio River we also once had a steel mill (now defunct and gone).During the last part of the 19th century and early part of this one it was quite a romp here. Gambling and prostitution seemed to be the bane of the good folk of town but We also had an Opera house and other cultural things. In our hayday we had a population in excess of 50,000 but we now have around 22000. It's a pretty little city and central to bigger ones where there are more things to do (that's why our children leave). As with all places there is much more I could tell you about. Right now it is spring, the weather is beutiful, 70 degrees+farenheit day/50's at night, flowers blooming. My favorite time of the year.
