Ramona Palmer Riddle grew up in Searcy Arkansas and I hope she becomes one of our honored Sleuths. She remembers so much about the old town. She shared this picture of her mother and dad standing at the porch of the house in which she was born. The picture appears to have been hand tinted. It's lovely.
This house just happens to be the neighboring house to our office at 1507 East Race Street so I hustled out the front door and snapped a picture of it as it is today. Notice they appear to have added a second front door and covered the exposed rafters with siding but the house is very much like it was then.
White we're looking back wouldn't it be nice to see the old picture of what used to be a little barber shop. Here is a better picture of it.
