Men with jackhammers
Description: Two construction workers use jackhammers to break up the surface of the road along North High Street in the Clintonville neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio. Invented by Charles King, the jackhammer combines a hammer and a chisel, and is typically used to break up rock, pavement, and concrete. 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.
