Here’s a fun story about Turner Designs founder, George Turner:
George went to Charleston High School. After school he would search the alleys for “things of interest” that businesses had tossed in the trash. He would glean mechanical and electrical items and take them home to his workshop in his Dad’s garage. He put on his roller skates and tucked the items under one arm and with the free hand would grab the rear bumper of a car headed toward his home and ride his roller skates all the way. He crossed the South Side Bridge in Charleston from the North side to the South side and then up hill on Bridge Road to his home. The trip was approximately two miles.
