Children looking at statue   Save
High Street Photograph Collection, 1972-1975
Description: A group of children gaze at a large statue as they walk down the street in downtown Columbus, Ohio. The bronze statues depicted in this photograph represent Peace & Prosperity. They flank a large statue of William McKinley, the 25th president of the United States. The McKinley Memorial, which was designed by Hermon A. MacNeil and dedicated on September 14, 1906, the fifth anniversary of the president's death, is located on the west side of the Ohio Statehouse. The Neil House, a downtown landmark for over 130 years, is visible in the background. 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.
