Men sitting on wall
Description: Two men sit on a concrete wall, while a woman walks down High Street in front of them in downtown Columbus, Ohio. Other pedestrians stroll down the street past cars, COTA buses, and local businesses, including the Nationwide Beauty Academy, a school which offers instruction in cosmetology. 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.
