Service station attendant
Description: A gas station attendant fills up the tank of a Volkswagen Beetle while a couple waits inside the car. At this full-service Exxon station, attendants routinely pumped fuel, cleaned windshields, and checked oil levels. Across the street from the filling station is a small shopping center, with shoe, jewelry, and fabric stores. 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.
