From Bristol History on Sunday, January 28th, 2018 in Civic & Government & Posts
I have many memories of this bus stop on Piedmont Street next to Burger Bar. It was the busiest corner in Bristol when the buses were running, Burger Bar was packed and everyone had bags from shopping at H.P. Kings, J.C. Penney's, Parks-Belk and all those clothing and shoe stores. Quite a memory, for sure!!

About Bristol History:

The BRISTOL HISTORY has been up and running for nine years. It was the first to be dedicated to the overall history of the city and preceded by the FB FANS OF BUNTINGS DRUG STORE, who's administrator died a short time later. In 2008 we felt there was interest in a broader dedicated to the Twin-Cities and BRISTOL HISTORY was begun. Founding administrator Gary Rose retired from the but BRISTOL HISTORY continues with current administrators Tim Buchanan, Jessie Manuel and Fred South. The is associated with the Bristol Historical Association, with whom I am the 2017 president. The will continue in a similar form but with new material, special columns and reports on historical projects and events throughout our city. If it's happening we'll make an effort to let you know about it. A PAGE is open to the general public and we welcome you to take a peek, post photographs and stories, ask questions and let others know what is going on in the city. Tim BuchananIt is my desire that this site may be used as an open classroom to learn, debate, share, and enjoy the stories about the people and events that have made Bristol a "Good Place to Live"

My dad drove a city bus for a long time in the 70's. I would sometimes ride on the bus with him on Saturdays, all day, just because i thought it was the greatest thing. LOL.

I grew up on Solar St. and my Mom would take my brother and me to the Piedmont Market, across from the bus station, to get a piece of candy or a bottle of pop. Sometimes we would get to eat at the deli. Nina kept some tasty stuff behind that glass. We'd go across the street and sit in the bus station and eat and watch the people come and go.
