Starbucks is there now where this cool Chevrom station was. Love the Piggly Wiggly store in the background.

actually, the corner with the stop sign is where the Starbucks is...there is a multi-purpose building on the Chevron corner, and the Piggly Wiggly is now a New Seasons market.

I remember passing through this intersection numerous times as a child, en-route to Grandma's. The thing that fascinated me was the overhead "stop" signal--it wasn't the usual traffic-light fixture, but instead a hanging pendant (it looks like an upside-down gumdrop) and in the photo is seen hanging from a long pipe just above the "Chevron" sign). The pendant's "gumdrop" flashed red and was simultaneously visible to all four directions of traffic. It reminded me of an upside-down police light.

And right behind the Starbucks is the Columbia Outlet store.
