Woman and child crossing the street
Description: A woman reaches behind her to grab a child's hand as they cross the street in downtown Columbus, Ohio. Other pedestrians stand across the street in front of the Southern Hotel and the Columbus Auto Club. Opened in 1897 as the Great Southern Fireproof Hotel and Opera House, the landmark hotel is now known as the Westin Columbus Hotel. The Columbus Auto Club, part of the American Automobile Association, offered roadside assistance, maps, and travel discounts. 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.
