If you ever visited Columbia's former Boone Tavern restaurant, you may have seen the many photos that lined the walls of the former downtown eatery. These images of historic Columbia, represent the photo collection assembled over many years by former restaurant owner Dick Walls. When Bleu Restaurant took over the space three years ago, the pictures of parades on brick streets and MU student revelry didn't really fit the new restaurant's aesthetic. Bleu owner Travis Tucker donated the collection to the Boone County Historical Society will be sharing some of those pictures at a members-only event this Sunday, February 28.
