Here is my beautiful home, taken from one of the city’s best vantage points, an amusingly boarded up fraternity with an easily climbed fire-escape on its side.

I spent way more time than I should have trying to match the advertisement that reappeared late last week after the demolition of the old Farmers and Merchants Bank with an image of when it was brand new.

Sadly, I couldn’t find a match. But I was able to verify that the Farmers and Merchants Bank went up in the late 1950s or early 1960s, which means that bright advertisement above has been there for at least sixty years. Furthermore, if you look at the second image, you’ll notice that Comuntzi’s - a restaurant located where Gibbie’s is now - purchased new space there on the right side of the image. You can see both the Coca-Cola and the Comuntzi’s on a white background beneath it. The advertisement above would have been from the left side of the second image, painted onto the building that has a sign that reads “Hotel.” 

I do wish I could have found an image but such is searching old archives. 

Thanks to longtime reader (and distant townie) Michael B. He was back in town over the weekend and noticed the uncovered advertisement.

I'm Austin. I'm a Mountaineer aspiring to do something with his life. I'm a DJ for WWVU-FM, and an amateur music reviewer. I don't get it either.
