Columbus, Ohio, USA

Pole banners began appearing on the landscapes of central cities in the 1980s. This one in Columbus spoke the truth: people would not patronize downtown unless it were fun. Routine shopping had followed the customers to suburban locations, and the CBD had become a doughnut hole of population density. Thirty years later, downtowns are fun once more. [1983]
