Garbage truck driver portrait   Save
High Street Photograph Collection, 1972-1975
Description: A garbage collector stands in front of his truck, posed for the portrait along North High Street in the Clintonville neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio. Garbage collectors remove trash from residential, commercial, and industrial sites, then deliver it to a solid waste treatment facility. This particular type of garbage truck is a rear loader. 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.
