JIM/History: Advertising in Columbia newspaper 90 years ago

The enterprise L.R. Chelf' continues in Knifley, KY, today, 90 years later. It no longer sells tractors, but can you guess which present day business traces it's lineage to Mr. Chelf? That shouldn't be too hard. But after you click on the headline, test yourself about the enduring nature of the other six businesses Jim cites as advertisers May 22, 2018 again. 1) One of the businesses is thriving to this day, in a different location and with a different name. 2) At least two of the businesses still operate under virtually the same names, but are in different locations. Recognize them?

Old truck a stone's throw away from Columbia Post Office


2018-05-19 - Columbia, KY - Photo by Robert Ellis. Robert writes, "Customers who frequent the Post Office in Columbia should be familiar with this scene since it's to their immediate left as they pull into to the Parking Lot.

Mr. Houston Murray was kind of enough to allow me and a fellow photographer on his property to take some pics of this old truck. I have had my eye on it for over a year and always wanted to see what kind of image the scene would produce... I'm very pleased the results."
