Couple along North High Street
Description: A man leans on a parking meter next to a parked Buick near the intersection of Russell and North High Streets in the Short North neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio. A woman stands with him with her back to the camera, and Short North businesses are visible in the background including Jay's Furniture, a plasma donation center, 630 Grill and Woodie's Furniture and Antiques. 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.
