Years ago, I wrote a great blog called Brazos Buildings & Businesses, which held several names over the years. Today, that blog is largely abandoned, with only some work going on to update the most out of date parts. Despite shopping it around, no one wanted to continue to pick it up, so I've done essentially a "stripped down" version of the blog, where I list things collected from directories and phone books (as such, dates may not be 100% accurate). Back links will be provided to the blog when available, and in many ways, this will be a "sequel" to the blog as I intend to still add advertisements and other things where applicable. (All will be mine, taken or scanned from phone books, unless otherwise stated) In terms of the actual "inspiration" of where I got this from, it was New York Songlines, which I'm not sure how often it updates based on the vast size (it does reference the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman and the apartment where he lived, so it's been updated at least since early 2014) what with the constantly changing environment of NYC and all, and Downriver Locations Through the Years, which is closer to my vision for this section of Carbon-izer. Originally it was in HTML not unlike what you will find here, but instead went to a rather bland off-the-shelf design. Unfortunately, this was only a cosmetic move and did not actually update any of the pages, which are still in a 2006-2007 time warp, which isn't necessarily bad from a present day position, and along with NY Songlines, it's still generally pretty easy to find a former location for an address back to around 2005/2006. In the future, I'll be integrating more and more of the blog and this page. Note that many of these aren't even "complete", with the University Drive one being the "closest" and if you've lived in the area, will notice several blank spots. How this directory works here should be noted that a date listed is when a directory, phone book, or newspaper said it was open, not if it's still open today, when it opened, or when it closed. Where available, a dash will indicate things still open as to the last time when these lists were updated (in this case, August 27, 2016). All of these are in the Bryan-College Station TX area unless otherwise noted.
