Mike Watson: Livery stable photo likely ca. 1909-2016
Concurs with Vonnie Kolbenschlag on location of Goff Bros. business
See: Comments re photo 66982 Favorite Old Photo Barry Loy seeks help on livery location
By Mike Watson
Vonnie K. is correct. The livery stable was on the down side of lot 51.
There were many stables scattered over Columbia prior to the modern age of the automobile and there were many changes-of-hand over the years as well, which caused business names to change, but not locations.
Goff Brothers, three in total, were involved in the livery business for several years early in the last century.
From about 1909 or 1910 Goff Bros. was in the spot on Campbellsville Street, left side as you leave the Square, on the "back" or "down" side of the lot, as Mrs. K. states.
By 1916 they had left this location, though it was still a livery for some years, and moved their operation to Burkesville Street. So, the photo likely dates from 1909 to 1916. - Mike Watson
