Moment in Time: Dec. 24

For several years, a holiday tradition for many central Ohioans included a visit to the Christmas-themed window display at the F. & R. Lazarus & Co. on the corner of South High and West Town streets in downtown Columbus. The scenes changed every year, and a ramp allowed children to get a close look at the moving parts, such as a 16-piece orchestra with a conductor or forest animals dancing around a tree. The store also had visits with Santa Claus on the sixth floor. The downtown Lazarus store closed in 2004.
