: Three women stand on the sidewalk in front of a large building identified as Marvin Yerke & Associates at 232 S. High Street, near the intersection of High and Rich Street in downtown Columbus, Ohio. A young man walks down the street behind them. On the pole next to the women is a sign for a police call box, which can be used to contact police and fire departments in case of emergencies.
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.
