: Portrait of a man identified as Mr. Gordon, photographed along North High Street in the University District of Columbus, Ohio. He is likely the proprietor of Gordon's Ice Cream & Candy, which operated from the 1960s through the 1980s with a retail store at 2199 North High and an ice cream parlor at the intersection of West Norwich and North High. The University District includes the small neighborhoods to the east and south of The Ohio State University campus on either side of the High Street corridor.
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.
