Favorite Old Photo: Burkesville & Fortune Streets, Feb. 1972

2013-07-18 - Fortune & Burkesville Streets, Columbia, KY - Photo from the collection of Larry Smith.
Larry Smith, Operations Manager for Shoreline Communications, came across this fabulous photo of Mrs. Morris Epperson and Miss Willie Rosenbaum posed near their home at the corner northwestern corner of the intersection of W. Fortune and Burkesville Streets. Significantly, all the buildings in the photo are still standing. Clockwise, from the women, the driveway of the First National Bank Drive In, the two story building is looks to be the back of the Harris Law Office Building. The Texaco Station is now Adair Farm Bureau South/Ernie Rogers office; and the Ashland Station is now headquarters of Walker Real Estate. On the right, the little white building is the Columbia City Maintenance Department's downtown storage building. From the date, which is known, some may be able to determine whether the Texaco Station was in the era of Harry Lee Dohoney or Lynn McLean, and whether Joe Hutchison was CEO at the Ashland Station or if it had already passed into its Golden Era, when Bill Ballou was the proprietor. - EW
