I think this is a neat photo from the past. It is estimated the photo was taken in 1939. Second Street was busy with patrons tending to business. Although the street decor has changed through the years, Second Street remains one of the busiest areas in Columbia. At present, the Columbian-Progress newspaper company, First Southern Bank, Columbia Cleaners, a funeral home, and attorney's offices are just some of the local businesses which occupy the buildings.
