 Worthington Ohio Corn Husking 1938

Worthington, Ohio October 24, 1938  - corn husking

 A photo from a farm on the east side of Worthington in 1938.  Don O'Brien (Dok1 on Flickr) took the photo at a corn husking. This photo is of the starting gun at the corn husking.

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:

Map - the intersection of Worthington Galena and E. Wilson Bridge Road today.  It is not rural now.  There are businesses on the north-side of E. Wilson Bridge Road backing to 270 now. 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?

Recycling is good? Worthington - October 24, 1938  The same photos in a post in 2009 about the same corn husking.  I believe Don O'Brien has at least one more photo of the day.   He has lots of photos from the 1930s and 1940s Worthington, it's worth a visit to his Flickr photostream. Don O'Brien (dok1)  grew up on W. Wilson Bridge Road. There is lots of Worthington history on his Flickr photostream. Many of Don O'Brien's photos are licensed with a Creative Commons license which allows commercial use.
