JIM: Fire 27 Sep 1921 altered huge section of Columbia square

By JIM

In the early hours of Tuesday, September 27, 1921 fire broke out in the back room of Nell & Cheatham's store on the southwest side of Columbia's public square and by the time the last ember winked out hours later, three business houses lay in smoldering ruins -- the Bank of Columbia; the Tola Walker building next door to the bank, which housed Geo. H. Nell & Gordon Carlisle Cheatham's "Right Angle" store; and Hutchison & Patteson's building and stock of goods, located between the Tola Walker building and the Paull Drug Co. business house and separated from the latter by a narrow vacant lot.
