Clark Filling Station photograph
Description: Two men stand at the intersection of Welch and South High Streets, across from a Clark filling station and Kentucky Fried Chicken, in Columbus, Ohio. Clark Oil is a leading refiner and marketer of gasoline, while KFC is a popular fast food restaurant specializing in poultry products. Houses, a mailbox, and several telephone poles are also visible in the photograph. 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.
