Where Is It? Mystery Picture: Adair Sales, ca 1928-29|
2013-02-27 - 103-105 Campbellsville Street, Columbia, KY. - Photo from from Hilda Joyce Willis Jenkins, Bowling Green, KY & the collection of Chuck Christiansen .
The late F.X. Merkely, on the left in the photo above, with his partner (whose name Mr. Christianson did not know, on the right. From the Ford on the left, Mr. Christianson dates the time ca 1928-1929. And he remarks that the showroom was 'green' well before that was a national effort, with the single bulb hanging from the ceiling, with its long on/off cord suspended, too. Mr. F.X. Merkley was the father of Pat Merkley, Mr. Christianson's late wife. After Mr. F.X. Merkley sold his interest in Adair Sales to his brother Louis, he operated Columbia's Rialto Theatre, Columbia's sole picture show for many decades.Following below is the cutline used in the Mystery Photo Puzzler:
We'll wait until after
10amCT 6pmCT to post the fascinating information a reader sent - along with some questions - about this photo. In the meantime, the Mystery Picture fans are asked to send us the Street & Number and the town of the current location. A hint: it's in the center of the universe in the 7 county CM primary coverage area including Taylor, Russell, Metcalfe, Green, Cumberland, Casey, and Adair Counties, KY. Later today, but no earlier than 10amCT, we'll post the information which goes with it. And, to level the playing field, we don't know anyway in the world Ofc. Josh Brockman of the Columbia Police Department can use his detective skills to track down my whereabouts or anybody else's to pinpoint the location, though, ironically, there is a clue in that message for everybody. Laying on Al Jolsons side, as the late Steve Aaron was wont to say, we aren't expecting the real answer anytime soon. Use the Comments button with the photo to send guesses. - ED WAGGENER
