Columbia Square in days past

2005-04-12 - Columbia, KY - Photo Staff. This watercolor by Columbia Mayor Patrick R. Bell depicts the quadrant of the Square from Jamestown Street clockwise toward Burkesville St. Mayor Bell thinks the era is 1920s-1930s, from the styles of the cars. . He also points out the gas pump at what is today the Radio Shack corner. If anyone remembers the gas pump, maybe that would put a fix on the date. The painting also includes the beautiful old First National Bank edifice, still missed by all who remember it. The mayor's style is evocative of Kentucky artist Paul Sawyier, and is in the Bell-Churchill-Eisenhower tradition of great statesmen-artists. The original is in the Mayor's Office, City Hall, Columbia, KY.
