A man carrying a bag and a sign crosses South High Street near the small village of Shadeville. Located close to the intersections of State Route 665, U.S. Route 23, and State Route 317, Shadeville was a former stop on the Ohio-Erie Canal. There are several signs in the photograph, including campaign placards and signs that advertise discounts on travel trailers. A large white barn is also visible in the distance.
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.
