My friend Don sent this old postcard photo of Searcy and gives the following explanation of this Searcy Arkansas, White County picture. Thanks Don. It is a REAL oldie.
1911 May Day Parade
If you can't read that faint caption, it tells us that those were public school children marching, and that this was taken on Spring Street, looking north toward the Court House. The court house dome can just be seen through the utility pole cross bars.
The building on the left should be the Gill House built in 1882 and later replaced with the Mayfair Hotel in the early 1920s and the building on the right should be the location of the Plaza Theater later.
