Is that a sign or banner hung across the street?

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?

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.
