The first thing that interested me when I came across this old picture was the cigar smoking dudes who looked so proud of themselves posing in their Sunday best.  Then I looked at their shoes.  Gaze down and see one man's shoe is a lace-up one.  It looks pretty worn but was the height of fashion....

1899 Searcy Daily Citizen finds a new home.Just a few days ago I ran a blog about what I should do with an old (and I mean REALLY old) newspaper that I had found.  Here's the blog.  Click to read it.  I found an old frame that held a limited edition print by Charles Fogle and put the newspaper ri...

Whaddya do if you find an 1899 newspaper that has been in hiding for over 100 years and is in bad condition but still readable if you hold it delicately?  I found this one and I am showing you the date on it.  March 3 (the three is turned wrong but my keyboard does not allow me to do that).  This...

Looking through a lot of memories, I found this ticket and jumped!  The Beatles came to Searcy Arkansas somewhere back in time!Then doing a closer examination, I saw that this was advertising the first Beatles movie!  No personal appearances but they gave out a Premier Souvenir Ticket for this fi...

I found this note that was carefully folded with "Important!" writen on the side and probably given to a friend.  Inside the note says,  "Judy, this is part of the glove I touched the Beatles things with.  Here is some of the vital information. Time:  Approx. 8:30 pmDate:  Nov. 28, 1964, Saturday...

I love it when I get picture contributions from some of the Searcy Sleuths.  Tom Headlee has given me permission to share this one with you and he gives a little history about it.  He and I are both hoping that perhaps these beautiful children can be identified and the location can be pointed out...
