Worthington, Ohio: 1939 is another of the historic photos in Don O'Brien's  Flickr Photostream.  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. Worthington, Ohio history Don O'Brien's Flikr Photostream is a great place to see Worthington Ohio in the 1930 and 1940's (link below.)   Thi...

Worthington area history - Flint Ohio This property is NOT for sale.  This is strictly about the homes history. The area known as Flint in Ohio was a village north of the Village of Worthington, both villages were in Sharon Township.   The Park Road area and the area which was Flint  are part of the Worthington City School District. According to Worthington Memory the former Flint Train Station  was moved from the railroad tracks on Park Road in the 200 block almost to Worthington Galena Road.  Worthington Memory gives the address of the house  as 525 Park Road. I have known this house for years, I never knew it was the former Flint Train Station though, when I saw the picture of it on the Worthington Memory site I recognized it right away. The picture (link above) of the Former Flint T...

  Flint was a little "village" north of the little village called Worthington.  The 'Top of the Flint' (the Pub... upstairs?)  at 225 Park Rd. Columbus Ohio 43235  is a place of legend...  The Flint Carryout is there just west of the railroad track.  I never really thought of Flint having been a train station, or pondered why it says FLINT on the front of the building.  Or a post office but I am sure it was.  Most of the land around it would have been farm land before much of the land in the Far North Columbus area (outside 270) was annexed to the City of Columbus. Train Station Building? The building that houses the Flint Carryout does not have that old fashioned train station look.  It is a big two story brick building. The ForgottenOH.com entry on Flint has it's own pictures of the b...

A photo taken for the Worthington News by Don O'Brien who grew up north of Worthington. He lived on W. Wilson Bridge Road which was out in the country in the 1930s, and 1940's. O'Brien was a senior at Worthington High School in December 1941, when he took the photo he labeled "After the Pearl Harbor Attack. "  A recent addition to O'Brien's Flickr Photostream he says of the photo: "These are the first enlistees from the Worthington, Ohio area being sworn into the Navy. I photographed this event for the Worthington News." Anyone recognize a father, grandfather, great -grandfather as a young man from the Worthington area who went off to World War II?

Worthington's  W. Wilson Bridge Rd. moved? "1967 I-270 and Rt 23 interchange, looking north" Clicking on the photo will take you to the photo on Flickr. 1967-xx-xx I-270 and Rt 23 interchange, looking north Wilson Bridge Road is the two squares south of the 270 interchange.  Route 23 (High Street)  runs straight down the middle. W. Wilson Bridge Rd. was moved south?   In reading 'Worthington Neighborhoods' when it came to reading the chapters about the Worthington Estates and Olentangy Hills neighborhoods and the resistance of residents to shopping malls  I understood that W. Wilson Bridge Rd is not exactly where it used to be...  or part of the road was rerouted to make what's now  called Worthington Square Mall north of Wilson Bridge Road. Worthington Plaza as it was known according t...

A photo from 1941 in Worthington Ohio...a radio used to listen to FDR Worthington Ohio Pearl Harbor Day.  I believe the boy on the right is Don O'Brien who grew up in the Worthington area.  Of this photo he says: "The radio with which I heard about the Pearl Harbor attack on December 7, 1941." The photo is from Don O'Brien's Flickr photo stream (Mr. O'Brien is Dok1 on Flickr) and is captioned: FDR's Speech for a Declaration of War December 8, 1941 O'Brien has a link on this photo on his Flickr photostream to Roosevelt's speech both a transcript and an audio tape. O'Briens first  comment on the photo also looks like he scanned a diary page.  His? It says: "Astonishing things happened today.  The United States declared war on Japan" the diary snippet goes on.
