Pedestrians waiting to cross street
Description: A group of men and women stands on the sidewalk while a car drives past them, along High Street in downtown Columbus, Ohio. The women are carrying purses, and one of them is smoking a cigarette. One of the men is covering his eyes with his hand, while the other man is holding a pack of cigarettes. 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.
