Ohio Industry as seen in 1933

This Beutiful building is a state office building in downtown Columbus,Ohio. It is a fantastic example of art deco architecture inside and out. It was built during the 1930's depression and glorifies the State, and the products produced here. Along with agriculture ,there is a great emphasis on manufacturing. and you can see the laborers here working with machines and steel. Which was a vital part of the state economy and a job a lot of people wish they had at that time. Ohio is the #2 state in the country in auto production, and at one time had a very active steel industry.
