High Street and Town intersection photograph
Description: A young woman crosses the street near the intersection of Town and High Streets in downtown Columbus, Ohio, while a street cleaner uses a broom to sweep the sidewalks. Several other pedestrians walk down the street, which is lined with local businesses, including a hotel, a jewelry store, car dealerships, and restaurants. Ho Toy, a Chinese restaurant and cocktail lounge, opened in 1959 at 33 East Town Street, then moved to 11 West State Street in 1980. 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.
