When we saw the tile roof of the @columbiarestaurant being replaced today we figured it was a good excuse to post one of our favorite Ybor pictures! . Say hello to the Columbia Restaurant circa 1925. By this point the restaurant was already 20 years old. The view is looking east down 7th ave towards 22nd st. So why do we love this photo? (Besides the fact it's a burget brothers photo) Because not only does it feature a Tampa icon but it also shows what Ybor City USED to be like. . We all know Ybor for the nightlife but very few really take the time to explore past historic 7th ave. While the town is definitely making a come back, Ybor used to be THE PLACE. It was a bustling community and home to Cubans, Spaniards, Italians, Jews and more. There was a high quality of life with cigar factories, shops, schools, churches, and mutual aid societies. Tens of thousands of immigrants moved to Tampa and specifically Ybor. One visitor described it as , "a colorful, screaming, shrill, and turbulent world." Basically it was a thriving city, not just a place you bring out of towners or have a drink. So next time you're in Ybor, look around and try to imagine it how it used to be! . Okay stepping off the soap box. Sorry, what can we say we're history nerds! #yborcity #archilovers #sellnerdy

When a friend *cough*@guidomaniscalco*coughcough* posts an image of the Seminole Heights charter school and reminds everyone that it used to be a teenage dance hall you're impressed. 💃 And IF you just happen to have a vintage photo of the building, you'd be a jerk if you didn't share right? Right? . Originally a drug store (and liquor store 😉) this building is most famous for being the home of Hullabaloo, a dance hall catering to teens. And apparently it's opening caused some serious drama. Because apparently no one wants "those kids drag racing their cars up and down our streets" (according to the Tampa times at least). In reality it ended up being a political problem as well spanning two mayors and lots of permitting issues. #seminoleheights #history #sellnerdy

sellnerdy. Today's lesson. Never question your parents. Even if you're 40. If dad

Today's lesson. Never question your parents. Even if you're 40. If dad says lets go get Lawnmower Tacos, you just go. You don't ask if its a typo or make fun of his age. You go get those Lawnmower Taco's. If you are looking for me the next several Tuesdays; here's a clue "Lawnmower Taco's" 2 blocks South of Gandy on MacDill. 🤓🌮🚜 #tacothursday #sellnerdy

"We been through every kind of rain there is. Little bitty stingin' rain...and big ol' fat rain. Rain that flew in sideways. And sometimes rain even seemed to come straight up from underneath. Shoot, it even rained at night..." . Seriously whoever's doing the rain dance you can stop. Last total we've had almost an extra foot of rain this year... #rain #floridalife #sellnerdy #forrestgump

🚗 The tradition of used car lots on Florida Ave is long and proud. No literally, they've always kinda been there. Case in point? Say hello to Locke Motor Company circa 1951. Located at the corner of Florida and Fortune the lot is still there but is now a parking lot instead! (Insert shock at a parking lot downtown). . We don't know much about the used car lot other than it was on Florida Ave and it was owned by a Radford Locke. What do we know about Locke? Not much. He went through a rather public divorce and he is listed in an FBI investigation but not as a primary target. But other than THAT we got nada. #tampahistory #downtowntampa #sellnerdy

Say hello to the barngalow of south Seminole heights! So what do you do when a client wants to buy a historic craftsman bungalow? Sell them the project house of all project houses that looks like a barn or the amityville horror house instead. 🤷‍♀️ . Interested in the transformation? Follow #amityheights for updates. It's going to be amazing. And let's just say Halloween will be EPIC! But more importantly, thanks for being the most amazing clients! 😘 #closingday #barngalow #sellnerdy

🍻 Say hello to the Olympic Bar circa 1936. Located downtown on the corner of Tampa and Cass (the Element today) it was quite the hot spot in its day. Why was it so popular? Turns out that two Italian brothers were running an illegal gambling operation out of it. OH... um... that would explain that. In 1939 the brothers were sentenced to 18 months for their scheme. It might be hump day and we might need an adult beverage, but we plan on avoiding any illegal gambling establishments no matter how good their drinks are. #truestory #tampahistory #sellnerdy

That moment when you realize a building from a historic photo is not only STILL THERE but you've actually been inside? 🤯 Say hello to the Azalea Lounge (cough nightclub cough) from 1950-ish. It's kinda fitting that a plant nursery is now in that space! @fancyfreenursery . Originally built in 1925 as a gas station, the building has actually served as a nightclub/lounge/bar for most of its life. Located at 1502 N Florida Ave near the interstate you've probably driven by this little spot countless times. #theheights #yellowbrickrow #sellnerdy
