Worthington Business

Worthington Motor Sales 1947 from Don O'Brien, who is Dok1 on Flickr

The photo is linked to the photo in O'Brien's 'Worthington Business' set which is part of his 'Worthington Ohio: My Hometown' Collection on Flickr.  There is a great conversation about the origins of the building and where the business moved later on the comments there. 

Worthington Motor Sales was on New England Avenue. I assume it was on the corner of High St. and New England.  Northeast or southeast?

News yesterday was that Worthington Ohio is something special!  Ohio Magazine named Worthington an Ohio's  Best Hometown for 2011.  People in Worthington have known what a great hometown it is for a long time.

Old Worthington Really   the Worthington Inn but it was the New England Inn at the time.

An older Old Worthington, the business district High St. Worthington Ohio in the 1930s.

Above posts  featuring Don O'Brien's photos (used with permission or licensed with a Creative Commons license) from the 1930s and 1940s.  Worthington was settled in 1803 but I believe when O'Brien grew up out in Sharon Towship north of Worthington, Worthington boundaries had not yet grown beyond the original village.

I'd never heard of Worthington, OH before and was curious.  I'm glad I decided to stop by.  I've just spent a very enjoyable hour reading and looking at pictures on the links you provided.

Thanks, Sue of Robin and Sue

Maureen I am an old soul and have always enjoyed old movies and pictures.  This one called out to me and I had to stop in and read.  Imagine a time when stopping for a photograph was a big deal.  I look at our own pictures from childhood and marvel how they didn't have a point and shoot and had to call in a photographer to capture the birthday festivities.  Until we moved to the US and Kodak became a friend.  Darn, I feel awfully old right now!

Thanks ladies.... missed your comments.  The spam in number three I got an email about. 

Maggie Don O'Brien was a professional photographer and he is still going strong in his 80's.  He lives in southern Ohio now but travels a lot.  I love his black and white photos but he does some great color stuff,  he was always into cars.  Now he goes to old car shows and photographs cars.
