Old Worthington Business District in 1938 or 1939
I don't like the e on the end of the old in "Old Worthington", that is how the Worthington business association spells it, Olde Worthington. The residential area surrounding the businesses on High Street is called Old Worthington, I am using it for all of it.
Another old picture from Don O'Brien who grew up in Worthington. If you have an interest in Worthington History you have to visit his photos on Flickr for pictures of Worthington in the 1930s and 1940s.
Old Worthington Business District - corner of High Street and ...
The sign on the corner says: Free Parking. I am trying to figure out what corner this is.
O'Brien says Home Market, a grocery store in the photo. I wish I knew what the Home Market's address was. I looked at the old ad to see if there was an address. O'Brien shared an old ad via Flickr from Home Market. Fun to see the pricing.
Old Worthington Businesses
Other businesses O'Brien identified in the photo include "Eicher Insurance, Johnson Hardware, Conklin Restaurant, Buell Drygoods" On Flickr O'Brien also says the telephone operators were above Home Market. I can read the sign on Home Market if I look at the largest version of the photo on Flickr. Home Market is the building the car across the street is in front of. The upstairs has awnings on the windows.
