High St, Downtown Columbus, OH.
Sweet little doodle. Now, if you should find yourself up in arms about what’s missing from this picture…I suggest drawing your own version. I think it’s quite lovely!
Thanks to snazziestsnatch for sending this my way.
The Crew Stadium scoreboard in Columbus is apparently on fire…
uncleslappy38 asked: Dave Kellough, of the University District History said you mentioned our fellow Clintonville resident Billy Cash. Your site is amazing! It's wonderful! As a life-long resident of Columbus, I recognize many of the locations in your images. I used to spend Saturdays with my grandparents at the Westland Mall in the 80's. My wife and I show BMN! at Studio 35. We also used to be photographers, taking polaroids very similar to your images: The Lovely Road. Keep up the good work! -Scott Hammond
Thanks for the message, Scott! Bad Movie Nite has been on my list of things to do in Columbus for a while…and I just love your website. It warms my heart to see the collection, as I’m always just dying to see snapshots that were taken in the years before social media went BOOM.

For anyone who grew up in Columbus, Ohio, or simply moved here before the nineties came to a close, you’ll remember our Center of Science and Industry’s old location. In the vein of Forgotten Ohio, this is a website that I hope never gets a facelift. It’s a trip back in time within a trip back in time. And aww, sigh…you’ll see pics of the original Wendy’s (R.I.P., dammit) across Broad Street at the beginning of your tour. Happy browsing!
I remember one of the last parties at this place. So surreal. BLD lives on…
Loving these snapshots so far from the My Columbus Tumblr blog.
