Columbia Screen & Awning, 935 Sunset Boulevard: 2011   1 comment

Posted at 1:20 am in Uncategorized






I was surprised when I went looking in old phonebooks and found that 2011 was the last listing for Columbia Screen & Awning -- This is a place I remember being advertised on the radio when I was growing up, so I figured somehow that I would hear when it closed. The marquee on this little West Columbia storefront (next door to Maunz Electronics) says they had been in business since 1959, which is a pretty good run. has some of their old site snapshots archived here.

I hate this time of year -- not only do I really dislike cold weather, but it gets dark so early that I really can only get daytime pictures on weekends. And even here, I missed my window for getting over there and ended up having to crank up the ISO or use flash.

  1. Being there are no post here yet, I will try to get this one started.
    I have two awnings that were installed by Columbia Screen and Awnings. I was more familiar with Columbia Tent and Awnings. However I used CS&A based on the price. My awnings started leaking after a number of years. I called them and asked what to do about the situation. They advised me to spray the awnings with a water repellent such as Thompsons Water Seal, Duh!! It worked perfectly. Was I humbled? Yes, just as I have many times before when I get on my high horse. I'm starting to think I need a shorter horse.
