A Look at an Old High Street

One of my fellow Columbus bike bloggers, Douglas Morgan, is soon to be starting a journey down the yesteryear of High Street, the main north-south surface street thoroughfare in Columbus (for those of you not living here - I assume the rest of you are familiar with High Street).

Here's the blurb from his blog:

Over the next several months, I'm going to take you for a journey along High Street and introduce you to some of the old and new shops and proprietors there..........and some of the memories. I hope to have photos to share with you, too. There are stories along HIgh Street that need to be shared and passed down.........stories of a community that was once connected. And there are new stories being created along High Street...........stories of the new immigrants to our community, stories of reinvention. As a community, I think we need to know these stories............and, in some ways, we need to go backwards before we can go forward.

As a history buff, and even as one who isn't native to Columbus, I find this fascinating. The face of Columbus has changed even since I've been here, and I can't imagine how it must seem to someone who lived in my neighborhood in the 1960s.

Definitely looking forward to this!

People, not speed.
