  Take a look at this old advertisement that was posted on facebook by Charles Lovell, Jr., who came from a "builder family" himself.  I love the sign. First of all, it tells who owned the house!  B. R. Fudge. It brags about who built it, B. F. Oliver, builder. And it tells who provided materials...
Remember when we used to communicate by mail?  Postcards?  Letters? It seems that it was appropriate to start out the mail with something that looked like this: Dear Bob,How are you today?  As for me, I am fine.  The weather is clear here today.... Note this card with the note on the mail side.  ...
I wish I could read what the sign says.  I can read Public sale but below that I can make out only a few words. This is another picture from the stereoscopic views of Judsonia that was scanned and loaned to me for this blog by Melanie Murphy from Judsonia. It is a great one showing a Land Office...
Our newfound friend, James Whitlow, poses the question of when did Bill's Grill become Bill's Restaurant after he studied his historic post card as shown above. He points out that the back of the card calls it Bill's Restaurant and the front of the card shows the "Grill" either removed or unligh...
This card is on ebay right now and is for sale.  I did a blog about the early days of this motel about two years ago.  The picture that was provided to me by the family is so much like this one that I thought it would be nice to review.  If you drive out East Race Street in Searcy AR right now i...
We have a new friend!  Melanie Murphy from Judsonia shared some great pictures with me to share with you.  They are stereoscopic views of mostly Judsonia but perhaps a few from Searcy Arkansas.  She does not have the viewer and we do have a question for the sleuths here because we need an explana...
  Here's another great postcard photo shared by James Whitlow, who collects post cards. This house is still in Bald Knob AR on Center Street.  Our last blog was about houses on the same street but they were not mansions like this one.  James thinks that the pictures were all taken on the same day...
  We have made a great new friend in James Whitlow, who does not even live in our area but collects cards from lots of areas and shares with us! Here's the latest.  He sent me this one from Bald Knob AR.  Probably Bald Knob had not named streets then but I recognized the tall two story house as o...
219 Market Street in Searcy Arkansas sold a few months ago.   It sold to the folks who own Salon Bliss and Boutique and they have made it beautiful.  I like the fact that they appreciate history and have actually saved a building from Searcy's past and made it the location of a successful busines...
 I remember. I remember when this style construction was so popular.  I loved the look of native rock and frame combined. I especially liked ranch houses built with this combination.  Evidently Harding University in Searcy Arkansas also liked the look because there are several apartment complexes...
