View of Downtown Columbus from Northwest Boulevard, 1918

This photograph, captioned "The Skyline of Good Old Columbus Town, Taken from the Knolls of The Northwest Boulevard" appeared on the inside cover of the October 1918 Norwester magazine. It was part of an advertisement for residential lots for sale near Upper Arlington by the Northwest Boulevard Company. Ben Thompson was president of the company and his brother, King, was secretary. The advertisement boasted that, as the crow flies, the Ohio Statehouse was less than two miles away from the development.
