Arial of construction of Third Street Viaduct circa 1961:
Very cool photo Walker; thanks for posting it.
There are a lot of viewable buildings on it that aren’t around anymore. You can see the old North Market Quonset hut, Mellman’s corner, the White Cross hospital, the whole Union Station and the buildings north of it (I believe the actual Station frontage on High is covered by the High Street label on the photo).
Hubbard elementary and Leafy Dale are also viewable and I believe another higher-rise between them that’s not around anymore.
There are also many more rail lines than exist today. I know some old-timers from the St Clair/E.2nd Ave area (east Milo-Grogan) that told me when they were kids they used to routinely walk along all of those rail lines to get downtown. Now I can see how they did that. That must have been an interesting walk!May 27, 2013 11:41 pm at 11:41 pm #451680
A la /r/columbus. Very good resolution pic of somewhere on high st. At least I hope it’s High St, I cannot picture where this would be.May 28, 2013 12:00 am at 12:00 am #451681

It is pretty cool to think how novel those electric lights were in 1910. Consider how hard it was to get the modern arches working. The night shot is pretty amazing.October 7, 2013 6:24 pm at 6:24 pm #451683
The old “Arena District”… from here:October 7, 2013 6:31 pm at 6:31 pm #451684
Has this already been linked? good times:July 2, 2014 2:52 pm at 2:52 pm #1027722
I was riding around today downtown and decided to check out the Scioto River since the Main St dam removal. I was surprised to see these very clear lines of stone in the receding waters. Google searching for historical photos of the area brought me here so I figured I’d put them side by side.

Wow! Very cool!July 2, 2014 4:35 pm at 4:35 pm #1027755
Yea, that’s a great find. It’s amazing how close they are to the river.July 2, 2014 7:51 pm at 7:51 pm #1027793
The old pic looks like a great place to cook boiled meats and gruel.
