Young man sweeping sidewalk at Garden Theater
Description: A smiling young African American man sweeps the sidewalk in front of the Garden Theater, located at 1187 North High Street in the Short North neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio. A poster on the right advertises the movie Skin Game starring James Garner. The historic Garden Theater opened in 1920, and is today operated as the Short North Stage as a performing arts center. 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.
