Welcome Folks, Take a Look Around..   10 comments

Well, assuming that no real news breaks this evening, there's supposed to be a piece on the WLTX late news for 1 March 2011 dramatically demonstrating why I don't have any pictures of myself on the site.

If that brings you here for the first time, feel free to sit a spell and take a look around.

Here's a list of Alphabetical Closings where you can look up your favorite places from days of yore, and here are some of the site's most popular posts and pages:

Tricentennial Songs

Forest Lake Park

The Hi Hatt Club

The Towers dorms

Waccamaw Pottery

Hurricane Hugo

The Wade Hampton Hotel

J.B. White's

Signs Your Favorite Restaurant Is About to Close

Ted's Rules For Restaurants

The Myrtle Beach Pavilion


Gibbes Planetarium

Old Richland Mall

Red Wing Rollerway

Feel free to leave comments!

UPDATE 2 March 2011: Commenter Chief Dan George has found the piece on the WLTX web site. It is here.

  6. I was born in 1954 and lived in the columbia area all of my life and am curious if you could help me find something. I saw a map five or six years ago that someone had framed of columbia streets and businesses. Some of the businesses were named and pointed out on the map (schools, walk-in theaters up town, Shimmy's Steak House, Colonial Grocery stores, etc. to name a few.) I asked the person that has the map where he got it from and all he could remember was a printing company. The era of the map looked to be from the early 1960's. I would greatly appreciate if you could find any info of this type of map.

    Thanks Alot,

  7. I enjoyed listening to what you had to say on last night. I have enjoyed learning about places that were before I came along and sharing what I know with the community of commenters.

  9. Great video! I actually showed this site to a co-worker at work. He's originally from Greenwood but has lived in Columbia for a long time and enjoyed seeing calling out a closed place and then finding it on this site.
