Mr. O'Brien identifies the event as taking place at the Walter Williams farm on Galena Road at the juncture with E. Wilson Bridge Road.
A map of that area today:

Wonder if there was a Huntley Road back in 1938? Now east of the junction of Worthington Galena Road and E. Wilson Bridge is the Budweiser brewery. The Wilson Bridge Corridor in Worthington Ohio is just south of 270.
It's been a number of years since there'd be a corn husking in the Worthington area.
The photo is of girls selling candy at the corn husking. Five cents for a candy bar?
