Worthington, Ohio history

By

Worthington, Ohio: 1939 is another of the historic photos in Don O'Brien's  Flickr Photostream. 

Worthington Village Green 1938

The car is a 1939 Packard ambulance according to O'Brien's notes. The owner according to O'Brien was S. E. Corbin and Son Funeral Directors, so it is a hearse?  Ambulance and hearse were the same thing?

In the background you can see the Worthington Village Green, St. John's Episcopal Church and an little bit of the Kilbourne Building which would have been the Worthington Library in 1939.

I'd assume Don took the photo in early December.  No snow.  A picture across the Worthington Green would be white today in 2009, but the snow came after Christmas Day.

Don O'Brien's Flikr Photostream is a great place to see Worthington Ohio in the 1930 and 1940's (link below.)   This picture was taken in December 1939 for a full page advertisement for the funeral home in the Worthington News.

Old Worthington the Old Worthington neighborhood today was the original Village of Worthington which was settled in 1803.  The Village had not grown much (at all?)  by the time Don O'Brien was growing up in the Worthington area in the 1930's and 1940's.

Linda I wish I would have looked to see if he had added anything new.... I wrote this weeks ago and had it saved as a draft and wanted to use it before the end of December.  He's recently shared a bunch of Christmas photos....  can I wait until next year? I feel like a user, using his content, even though it is shared with a CCL....  such a treasure. I hope people Worthington people are visiting his Flickr photostream, there is a lot of history there.
