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"

    The Lee Theater operated on West State Street between 1949 and about 1959. It was a popular hang-out for young people in Bristol. What movies do you remember seeing at this theater? This was noted as being the opening night of the theater in May, 1949!

Is that a sign or banner hung across the street?
Thursday, February 15th, 2018
I have tried to pull that sign out and get a good closeup of it--I even tried reversing it (that almost, but not quite works--because it would end with a reversed "c." We have looked and looked at it, but I don't think it says Columbia. It appears to have 2 "M's" in the middle and end with "C." That's all we can figure out. When did they put up the Bristol Tenn/VA sign in it's place?
Friday, February 16th, 2018
Yes, I hv an old postcard in my collection from a view closer to the sign and it is for the Columbia Theater.

AHA! It DOES say Columbia Joe. You are correct. It is hard to see, because the word is on both sides of the sign. If you look at it--the letters on the reverse show through. You are very knowledgeable.
