Construction workers downtown photograph
Description: A group of construction workers wearing hard hats stand on the corner of Broad and High Streets in downtown Columbus, Ohio. Next to the men is a Citizen-Journal newspaper stand. Published from 1959 to 1985, The Citizen-Journal was the daily morning newspaper in Columbus, Ohio. A large traffic sign instructs drivers not to turn right at the intersection. 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.
