Welcome to Columbia Magazine  

The truck and the building behind it

The van mentioned by Billy Joe Fudge (in the background of his 1976 photo sent in by Mike Watson) sat in front of the press room of Waggener Walker Newspapers on Jamestown Street in Columbia, a venture that was in business until just after the recession of late 70s, early 80s. God bless every person who helped make it work before moving on to brighter futures! Pieces of that experience would be incorporated into Columbia Magazine, South Central Printing, Printing Creations, The Adair Progress, The Farmers Pride/Community Voice, and more. The house beside the press room may have belonged to Lula Bell and George Simpson.
