Luigi's Pawn Shop photograph   Save
High Street Photograph Collection, 1972-1975
Description: A young man rides a bicycle past Luigi's Pawn Shop at 1243 North High Street in the Short North neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio. The pawn shop has operated for decades at this location just north of the intersection of North High and Fifth Avenue. 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.
