Large crowd waiting for  downtown parade
Description: At the corner of Broad and High Streets in downtown Columbus, Ohio, a large crowd watches for the start of a parade while American flags fly overhead. Roy's Jewelers, visible across the street, occupied the northeast corner of Broad and High from 1920 to 1985, a site which is now the location of a local network news live broadcast studio. Designed by Thomas Lamb and built in 1926, the RKO Palace theater is a world-renowned performing arts center. Now known as the Palace Theatre, it features ballet, Broadway shows, concerts, dancing, operas, and symphonies. The High Street Photograph Collection is comprised of over 400 photographs of High Street in Columbus, Ohio, taken in the early 1970s. These photographs were taken primarily at street level and document people and the built environment from the Pontifical College Josephinum on North High Street in Worthington through Clintonville, the University District and Short North, Downtown and South Columbus. The photographs were used in a television photo documentary that aired on WOSU called "High Street." Photographers that were involved in this project were Alfred Clarke, Carol Hibbs Kight, Darrell Muething, Clayton K. Lowe, and Julius Foris, Jr. View on Ohio Memory.
