Driving north on High Street   Save
High Street Photograph Collection, 1972-1975
Description: Cars, buses, and trucks travel north along High Street in downtown Columbus, Ohio. On the left side of the street near South High and Fulton is the Franklin County Hall of Justice, a courthouse located at the southeast corner of Mound and High Streets. The large skyscraper under construction in the distance is the Rhodes State Office Tower. Completed in 1974, the Rhodes Tower is the tallest building in Columbus. 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.
