High Street Photograph Collection, 1972-1975
Description: A female employee of a Sohio gas station at South High Street and Greenlawn Avenue in the German Village neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio, poses for a seated photograph with her legs crossed beneath her. Sohio, or Standard Oil of Ohio, was later acquired by British Petroleum (BP) and re-branded throughout the state. 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.
