An ad from the Rossland Miner’s historical edition of 1938 contained a photo of a dapper-looking Alfie Albo, proprietor of the Columbia Garage:
Below is a photo I took of Alfie in his basement in June 2003. He died three years later at age 96. Wayne Krewski recorded several CDs and made several videos of Alfie’s stories. Alfie’s garage is still standing. In 2005, it became a restaurant called The Garage. During renovations, Alfie shared photos and stories of the building with proprietor Julie Eyres. This year it changed hands and reopened as the Fuel Gastropub and Diner.
