Description: This photograph shows a view of South High Street Columbus, Ohio, looking north. A streetcar and autos share the road; parked cars line both sides of the street. The sidewalks are crowded with pedestrians. The top of the LeVeque Tower is seen in the far background. Columbus's famed Neil House hotel is situated in the middle of the block.
The hotel was erected in the 1820s as a tavern. Proprietor William built a hotel on the site in 1839; this structure burned down on Nov. 6, 1860 and was replaced in 1862 by new building. In turn, that hotel was replaced in 1924 by the structure seen in the photo. This 600-room hotel was torn down in the 1980s to make room for the expanded Huntington Bank Building.

Buckeye Steel Castings lining ladle with cement gunSave
Description: This photo depicts the lining of a ladle with a cement gun in the Buckeye Steel Castings taken on June 15, 1917. The Buckeye Steel Castings Company began producing iron castings in Columbus, Ohio, in 1881. It was not until it shifted to automatic steel railroad car couplers that the company exploded. By 1916, Buckeye Steel Castings claimed to be "the largest steel foundry in the world" to produce steel castings for railroads. Samuel Bush, President George Bush's grandfather, was president of Buckeye Steel during this time period.
The Buckeye Steel Castings Company closed its doors due to insufficient capital in the early 2000s. A new firm purchased the company and renamed it Columbus Steel Castings Company. This company continues to manufacture railroad-car undercarriages. View on Ohio Memory.
