Downtown window shopping photograph
Description: A young woman gazes in the window of Diamond Gallery, a local jewelry store at 99 S. High Street in downtown Columbus, Ohio. In addition to necklaces and watches, the store also sells such keepsake mementos as clocks, plates, and cups. In the foreground is an alarm 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.
