JIM: Ads in the News edition 9 Oct 1957

2017-10-06 - 100 Quadrant, Public Square, Columbia, KY - Photo from the collection of JIM.
These two businesses were side-by-side on the Public Square in 1957, in buildings which would have been just to the right, facing the building, of CEO Mark Dykes corner office. Comparable prices then and today: Those Tv's were supported by cable Tv. One had to have a "Montana" - as antennae were called in those days by some folks, preferably one on a tower above one's house, preferably one with a "Tenarotor" which could be rotated for a better signal. But prices at the theater were, by comparison, a real bargain. (And these appear to have just undergone a price hike).
