Weathersby's G A Texaco / Auto Trim Design, 1700 Taylor Street: 2009   1 comment

Posted at 10:59 pm in business

According to their still extant web site, Auto Trim Design was founded in 1973 and introduced auto window tinting to Columbia in 1983 (As I recall, there was a legal problem with window tinting before then).

Interestingly, Google StreetView shows them with a different paint job, so the current "rising sun" look must be fairly recent. It's definitely a little more eye-catching.

UPDATE 20 September 2011: Commenter Tom points out that the building was a Texaco, which I was able to confirm from the 1961 Yellow Pages.

  1. This building dates back to at least the 1960s and was a Texaco gas station. At one time it was a part of the old Cate Mclaurghan (spelling?) appliance company.
