: A woman and child stand on the sidewalk in front of the Junior Achievement office along High Street in downtown Columbus, Ohio. Established in 1950, the Junior Achievement of Central Ohio is a nonprofit organization that provides programs on workforce readiness, entrepreneurial skills, and financial literacy to enhance the education of young people. Across the street is the Clock Restaurant, a downtown Columbus landmark located at 161 North High Street. The restaurant, which closed in 1979, is the current site of the Elevator Brewery & Draught Haus. Other downtown businesses can be seen on either side of High Street, as well as pedestrians and traffic.
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.
