Art Print Description:
Despite living in Auburn for a couple of years, there are places I’ve only heard about. The Sani-Freeze was one of those Auburn landmarks I never knew firsthand. But for many Auburn Alumni and people others who called Auburn, Alabama, home, Barber’s Sani-Freeze is a beloved memory.
The building itself started life as The Doll House, a sandwich shop that was opened in the late 1930s. The Doll House lasted until around 1952 when the building was rented and re-opened as a dairy bar. Barber’s Sani-Freeze was a legend that would grow beyond the footprint of that tiny building in downtown Auburn.
Those not from Auburn may wonder why so many called the Sani-Freeze, The Flush. From what I’ve been told and read, that was because of the unfortunate coincidence that around the same time as the Sani-Freeze opened, Sani-Flush advertisements hit the air. Sani-Flush was a toilet bowl cleaner. And it was virtually inevitable someone made the mental calculation that the Flush would be a funny nickname for the little eatery. And it was one that stuck!
By the time I came to call Auburn home, The Flush had moved to a strip mall. A bank that owned the property ended the lease so that they could use the property for a new bank branch. There were initially plans to move the building but it was soon determined that the structure wouldn’t survive moving. The strip mall location never had the same air of authenticity and slipped quietly into the pages of Auburn history a few years later. Honestly if I ever visited the Sani-Freeze in its last incarnation, I don’t recall it, but hearing people who went to Auburn before me talk about it makes me sad I never knew the magic of that Auburn landmark that so many miss.
This was a highly requested Auburn print after people saw my War Eagle Supper Club print. And despite knowing it by reputation only I wanted to honor the memory of Barber’s Sani-Freeze, another lost piece of Auburn history. I would love if you took a moment to let me know if this auburn artwork brings back memories of your years at Auburn? And if you want to share any anecdotes about the Flush, please feel free!
Wonder what past print buyers think?
I gifted my father with this piece (Troy’s Snack Shack Print) and he loves it! He thought the man in the doorway was him.
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!
I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
I got my print today, thank-you so much.
I love it!

I purchased this pair of Tisdale artwork (Dawn Divides and Contemplating Life) for a wedding gift. The couple are getting married this summer in a facility on the Chattahoochee in Roswell, GA. This pair of photos on canvas is going to mean so much to them. I could not be more pleased to give them as a gift to my son and new daughter-in-law.
Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
I got my prints today! I had them done on wood and I love them! Mark was so kind to work with me on what I wanted!
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.
Mark Tisdale’s work is excellent.
The cards are very high quality. Images are sharp and colors are vibrant!
The print is absolutely breathtaking! I immediately went and had it framed, I just couldn’t wait to display it.
I’m excited to show off your work to my friends and family. You are one of the most talented photographers I’ve seen and it’s a pleasure to own your work.
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
Yes! I got my tractor print in the mail today, and I love it! It is beautiful. It is vibrant and ….perfect… and I am going to frame it and hang it asap! I love it. Thank you Mark! You are an amazing photographer.
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it… It’s absolutely beautiful.
I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris.
Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
Love it… the print arrived today and looks awesome!!
Now I just need to get a suitable frame and get it up where it can be enjoyed.
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
Unlike a purchase from a big box store, your print purchase from this site directly supports this artist. Thank you for making a difference!
