Sleep-over of yesteryear?This picture was given to me by Sherry Person, whose dad collected lots of pictures and loved history, for this blog.  It makes me think of how kids used to have fun.  This seems to show young boys out in the woods with a tent, building a fire and probably planning a "sle...
This photo shows the other most popular attire in the 1950s with Searcy High School girls.  We just discussed the pearls-with-a-sweater trend and now we have another picture with the little-scarf-around-the-neck style.  I mentioned that I grew up in Georgia and we dressed this way also and I wond...
Fashionable girls who were football royalty.I grew up in Georgia and I can remember pulling my sweater up under my pearls and I looked similar to these girls from Searcy AR.  I also had the socks with shoes like these, the skirt that showed only a short amount of leg so the style must have been n...
Jody's new car?Here's another great old snapshot that was loaned to me with permission to share on this blog.  The writing was underneath the scanned photo and tells who was there......even down to the dog's name.  But we don't know who owned the dog!  Jody Taylor, so it says, was home from the A...
Where they were?  What they were doing?  Why they were together?I don't know.  (But Searcy Sleuths will know.)   I do recognize lots of the ladies.  In fact, I recognize almost all of them but can't recall the names.  Definitely, they were on a nice brick porch and they were all dressed up.  I do...
 A friend and I were visiting an estate sale a few days ago.  The sale was for property from a very well known Searcy AR person who had passed away.  She had grown up in Searcy, moved away for years and years, and then moved back.  There in the house was hanging a white-looking jumpsuit thing wit...
The last one!  Promise!We have just had two birthday parties from many years ago on this blog.  I promise that this is the last one and it really needs to have someone tell us who these lovely girls (and we are down to two handsome boys) were.  Anita Hart, our little birthday queen, is in the mid...
Bear with me.  We were on the subject of birthday parties of the past and how much they brought out the dress clothes and the good manners for the youngsters.   Well, here we are with the possible same bunch of kids on the same street but just a little bit older.  Anita Hart Fuller is right there...
Remember days like this?  It is probably typical of parties held long ago.  All the kids are told to look this way for the picture but the sun is so bad on their eyes that they have to put the arm up.  Note all the shadows of the grownups looking on for the fantastic picture of the kids having a ...
Here is a great old post card showing a Searcy AR family visiting the world's tallest building.  As they climbed to the top, the photo guy was there to snap their picture and sell it to them.  The picture had to be made prior to 1972 because that is when the Empire State Building in New York lost...
