I'm always writing about Searcy Arkansas because that's where I live and work and Searcy has grown through the years.
Thumbing through my picture collection, however, I found this interesting shot. It is a picture of Romance, Arkansas in 1930. Romance lies 22.1 miles from Searcy and the trip takes about 49 minutes. Actually, you head toward Joy and it leads to Romance (big Arkansas joke but a true statement).
About the only thing at Romance is a post office. Folks go there to buy stamps to put on wedding announcements or valentines or sometimes they'll plan their wedding in Romance. With gas as high as it has become business may be down at Romance. By the way, this is a photo that is almost unchanged except that if it was a store, it's no longer there and this street may be paved now.
