We fly the flag: Twin flags at Franklin Nissan

2014-07-15 - 704 Jamestown Street, Columbia, KY - Photo CM Staff Photo. An some random memoriesThe flags which frame the entrance to Franklin Nissan, 705 Jamestown also frame, from another perspective, Jeffries Hardware & Wholesale Electric, located across the street at 704 Jamestown Street, in a building which began as one of two Columbia Dr. Pepper Bottling plants at the time, on land once owned by the late Mr. Jim Beard; 705 Jamestown Street, had the telephone number "192A" at one time, and if memory is correct, it's ring on the party-line was "two longs and a short. 705 Jamestown Street was the home of the rather lively family of the late E.P. and Audrey Chelf Waggener, whose memory is honored each summer with Christmas in July, one of the older family reunions in Adair County. The photo is taken from what was once the parking lot of G & G Motors, before which it was the home of the late Ernest & Louise Conover and of her father, Byron Montgomery. Byron Montgomery drove a little doctors coupe and was a gauger - just like the poet Robert Burns - by occupation. His work was largely in Nelson County. Columbia didn't not have have government approved distilleries at the time. - EW
