Upper Arlington: a trip down "Memory Lane"

By
Real Estate Agent with HER Realtors

Upper Arlington - Lane Avenue about 1950...  a trip down Memory Lane... there was a movie theater?  called "The Lane"

W. Lane Ave. Upper Arlington Ohio c. 1950

 

If you look at the original size photo of Lane Avenue on Dok1's Flickr Photostream you can read the street sign and see you are standing on the lot just west of Chester Rd. looking south at shops on Lane Avenue including a movie theater.  I put the blue pin in the map on the corner with the street sign.   Lane Avenue Columbus, Ohio: circa 1950

A flower shop, The Craft Shop, Arlane Restaurant...and other shops you can see better in the larger original photo on Flickr  were located on W. Lane Avenue when the shopping center was new.

There are a number of old photos featured on my Worthington Ohio real estate site, from Don O'Brien (Dok1 on Flickr) in both Worthington history and Old Worthington.  His Flickr Photostream has pictures of the Worthington area in the 1930s and 1940s and other Central Ohio locations.

Thanks to Don O'Brien who shared the photo with a Creative Commons license so I am able to share it here. Dok1 Flickr Photostream

Maureen, old city and old people photos are my favorite. I just love imagining being there. Remember the movie Back To The Future, my mind thinks like that of the creator of that movie all the time.

1950s is old but the town was settled in the 1910s' 1920s... there are old parts of Upper Arlington. I love Back to the Future.
