Homecoming Royalty in Searcy ArkansasHow thrilled folks were, way back then, to have their pictures in the newspaper.  This old clipping has spent many years in an attic or two (date is somewhere around 1964) so it is probably not as clear as we'd like it to be.  But it is good that the names are...

WOW!How did they get the picture to look like this?  This was a long time ago, approximately in the 70's, when no one had tricky cell phones that do amazing things.  The young man was in the tree and another young man took the picture.  I stumbled upon it the other day and was once again stunned ...

What a cute card.  It certainly makes you take notice!This old card is from 1954 and has a calendar on the back.  The front, as you can see, reads "There is a difference IN SOFT DRINKS TRY C & C SUPER in the Sanitary Cap Top Can."The back of the card says, "IT'S 'SUPER' all year 'round."  Then th...

Loaded downThis car has to bring memories to lots of people.  What did we call those things that covered back tires?   Hubby, the retired car dealer, says "fender skirts."  But he says he sees no seams so perhaps this car was just made that way.  And were those things  at the back called tail fin...

Santa is Smokin'!In more than one way.  He is wide-eyed and ready to jump in the sleigh.....PLUS.....he is smoking a pipe!  I collect Santas in a small way and got this one from an estate sale a few days ago.  I didn't think much about what he was doing but once I put him in the herd, he stood ou...

Elizabeth Gertrude DurhamThe pretty girl on the left was named Elizaeth Gertrude Durham and I think the girl on the right was her sister.  The picture dates back, way back, and the girls are dressed in very pretty and fancy outfits.  The hair styles appear the same with a huge bow at the back.Eli...

Rare FindThese are so old that they are difficult to read but I finally got a good picture of the two so you can also see and read them.  They are full of interesting information.  First, the newer one is called a DOG TAX .  It was good for one year, I assume, and would have to be renewed......mo...

1948 is the date on the photograph.Could it be a new tractor?  Could he be showing it off?  Something about this picture interested me because you see a lot of guys and gals beside their automobiles but not many beside or on their tractors.  Perhaps some of you will know what kind of tractor it w...

Beloved bicycles.I love old pictures as readers know.  I also can't understand why some families don't cherish their old snapshots of family.  The top picture above is an unknown person......cast aside by family who didn't want the old photos.  He seems to be so proud of his bicycle and it, as my...

So what does this mean?I found this picture at an estate sale.  There were other pictures of the same lady with normal snapshots taken outside the house.  So you could see that a picture had been cropped so that it was placed in this coffee cup.  But WHY was she in the coffee cup.  Was Camel Ciga...

 25" waist? Turner Classic Movies has become a favorite place for me to go after a tiring day in the real estate world.  One that I am watching now is "On the Town" which was done in 1949.  It's a musical and the female stars had short hair and longer dresses.  All of a sudden the star above came...

I love this picture!  It is part of the Dale VanPatten collection of pictures and historic documents.  I like the old house in the background, the kids looking so well-behaved, and the teacher standing beside the group.The old style-thing shows up again.  Girl's hair style was short-hair-with-ban...

This pretty little house that once had a front porch is on its way down.  While driving by I did my usual OMG reaction to seeing this one almost gone.  And then I started remembering that its neighboring house was already gone!  So, Searcy Sleuths, what was the neighboring house?  Ok.....here's t...

We have published the old Plaza Theatre picture before but this time it has the names of the band members.  I have always loved the looks of the building and the perfect way all the band members are sitting and standing.  The sign to the right on another street says, "Varner's Cleaners & Tailors....

Where was it and what were they doing?This picture has Nov. 1952 written on the back.  The front lower corner says Novak Bald Knob Ark.  The water tower has something that looks like " ...national ......Co" written on it.  Could it have been International Shoe Co.?So, Searcy Sleuths, can you tell...

Giant!  One giant of a movie!I was watching Giant, the 1956 movie that is still a great movie and one that I had not seen since it was first shown.  One memory is still sad.  I heard that James Dean, my idol at the time, had died.  In fact, he died before the movie was released.Anyway.....back to...

Kathi Raines at The ArtistryI stopped by The Artistry at 802 S. Main, Searcy AR today and almost didn't get away.  It is a creative artist co-op with retail shops and a learning center.  Kathi Raines is the artist/owner.  I have known Kathi for years but didn't realize all the creativity that has...

Mercury dealership approximately 1952.The building is still there. I drive by this building daily, almost, and have wondered what was once there.  Seeing a picture in the book, "Memories of America Searcy" with my husband, a former car dealer, he pointed out that the Mercury dealership was once l...

Queen of Floyd SchoolI stumbled across this picture while looking through an album full of old pictures with most of them pictures from the Floyd AR area.  Floyd was once a thriving community, so it seems, and the school had not consolidated at the time of this picture.The pretty girl in the pict...

Where was it?This old picture was included in an old album of photographs of  folks from Floyd Arkansas.  The girl, as written on the back, was Bettye Perry and there are several pages of pictures of her.  So who was she?  The album has pictures of the school at Floyd before it was closed and lot...
