Man sitting on wall in downtown Columbus
Description: A young African American man wearing a bucket hat sits on a concrete wall smoking a cigarette along High Street in downtown Columbus, Ohio, while an empty baby stroller sits close to him. A wide green lawn, shrubbery, and trees are visible behind the wall, possibly part of the grounds of the Ohio Statehouse. 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.
