High Street, Jefferson City

I had an opportunity to photograph Jefferson City's downtown, which is centered on High Street.High Street illustrates the pluses and minuses of a downtown that remained semi-viable through the suburbanization of America. One one hand, the buildings are occupied, but unfortunately they are often plastered with ridiculous vinyl and metal coverings--to make them look "modern."Admittedly, some of these 1950's sheathings do have their kitschy appeal.
