Favorite old photo: Polaroid print of 705-707 Jamestown Street

2017-11-14 - 705/707 Jamestown Street, Columbia, KY - Photo from family collection .
If you remember these houses on Jamestown Hill, you are likely just, or even well into, your withering years; maybe past the half way point. Linda discovered this photo showing, on the left, the house where Ralph Roy Waggener was born; and on the right, where the last graduate of Columbia HighSchool, Hilda Joyce Willis Jenkins, grew up. There are two collector cars. Ralph Roy's pushbutton transmission Valiant. And a dandy 60's 'Chivalay.' The brown patches in the photo are just deterioration in the Polaroid print. Faintly seen, in the middle of the photo, is the Tenarotor which brought in maybe three channels on the Dumont Console Tv, when it was in use in the 60's, the one we watched all the wonderful Democratic and Republican conventions on, waited for Walter Cronkite each evening on, and followed, non-stop, the assassination of JFK. - Ed Waggener
