I've heard this kind of sandwich refered to as a "double decker" but
never specifically connected with Cincinatti. It usually is a club
sandwich with minor variations, chicken/turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato,
sometimes thin Swiss cheese layered between 3 pieces of toast. I often
sometimes make BLT's as double decker sandwiches.

Speaking of sandwiches, something I heard when I was a kid which probably
came ultimately from the Depression was the "jam sandwich" the recipe
being "you take two pieces of bread and jam 'em together." I had always
thought it was most likely a joke.
