I wish folks would write on the back of the pictures and tell who the people were and why they were being photographed and what the relationship was. But even pictures in my own house are not labeled. We never expect to have our photos end up in a flea market with a price on them because they are...

Here is another very sad picture of Judsonia folks walking after the tornado that hit Judsonia in 1952.  This picture is for sale on ebay right now and does belong in the Judsonia archives so hopefully it will be found and purchased by Judsonia. Click here. Also, since Judsonia AR is so close to...

Here are a few interesting ads from an old cookbook that dates back to possibly the 1920's in Searcy AR. I was surprised to find two chiropractic ads.  Dr. H. O. Swartz gave instructions for a happier and more healthy life.  Dr. Jewel Teem had an office at the Peoples Bank Building that we featur...

Here's another ad from our found Woman's Missionary Society Cook Book from Searcy AR.  I like the cat that illustrates the ad for Word's Grocery and Bakery.  The ad says they can furnish every item needed in the recipes found in this book. Okay, then.  Supply the supplies for Rinktum Diddy.  And ...

Studying the ads in an old Woman's Missionary Society cook book reminds me that Searcy has not forgotten her history. Robbins-Sanford exists again in the form of a grand hall for holding get-togethers of all kinds.  It is located in the same spot downtown and all of Searcy loves it. Here is the a...

Here is another ad from our old Woman's Missionary Society Cook Book.  The book is old but interesting.  It seems to date back to perhaps the 1920's.  I have no knowledge of a Bethells in Searcy AR.  I checked Dr. Muncy's history book and found nothing.  I even Googled and found nothing.  Perhaps...

In all my real estate career, over 31 years, I have never seen a beauty like this. I have seen claw footed tubs. I have seen different colors of tubs. I even saw a urinal in the master bath once. But this is the first wooden tub that I have ever seen. Look and admire. It was in a house with a vie...

More ads from the old Woman's Missionary Society Cook Book.  Notice I made a change which I had not noticed before.  It is NOT Women's but Woman's Missionary Society Cook Book. This ad is for Searcy Wholesale Grocer Co. and they ran two ads on the same page!  One is for shortening and the other f...

FOR SALE ON EBAY JUDSONIA AR RHEW MERC. CO. GENERAL MERCHANDISE.   This wonderful old post card is on ebay for sale.  Judsonia AR needs to buy this card and hang it in City Hall. It shows Judsonia AR before the demon tornado that attacked the city in 1952.  I love the little kids in the picture, ...

Here are two more ads from the Women's Missionary Society Cook Book that we think may date back to the 20's in Searcy Arkansas.  Read about the handmade clothes.  What's a bushelman?  What is Glover continuous flow? At least we have the location of one of the businesses.  600 South Spring Street...
