We put Beebe Arkansas on this blog a few days ago and this particular photo was placed on the blog.
Our blog friend James Whitlow has the same card and he enlarged some areas. See them below.
And he included a look at the street more like now, modern Beebe Arkansas!
Here are other Beebe AR blogs if you are interested.
beebe: 1965 revisited at the Duncan's Used Car Lot on East Race Street, Searcy Arkansas. - 03/03/12 06:56 AM
Just a blog or two ago I talked about little old office buildings that served as offices for car lots. I put this one up as an example of how they are just about gone and are showing lots of wear and tear. This one is in Beebe Arkansas.
Imagine my surprise when I was browsing through a 1965 Searcy High yearbook and saw this picture in the advertisements.
I hollered to Hubby (who was part of the Duncan crew) and said, "Well, look at this old picture of the car lot with the College Church of Christ in the background!" … (12 comments)
beebe: Bald Knob, Beebe and Kensett AR movie theaters of long ago. Movies on Saturday 15 cents. - 08/02/11 10:45 PM
Searcy has an old movie theater that has lots of fame and gets lots of publicity. How about the other small towns? I think each had a movie theater and each theater was loved by the kids, especially on Saturday afternoon when they had a cowboy movie and a serial before the movie. I always wondered HOW that girl could be saved from that conveyor belt headed for the saws with her strapped on the belt and screaming her head off.
Here's Bald Knob.
Here's Beebe. Beebe just had a fire in this old structure so changes are in store.

beebe: Letters, letters, I get letters.....and I like getting the letters. - 06/28/10 09:19 PM
One thing about a blog is that it stays out there in internet land for a long long time. We may forget it but someone else is finding it and finding it interesting. Such is the case with my Beebe Arkansas depot blog. I just received this inquiry.
I just recently purchased an old desk from the flea market that now occupies the Beebe Depot. They told me this desk came with the depot. They had no idea how long it had been there but I did do some research on the company that made it and they had … (14 comments)
beebe: A very interesting SOLD picture on our MLS from old Beebe Arkansas - 12/09/08 12:26 PM
We do a lot of griping about photos of our MLS listings and solds. Today I sat up straight when I saw this one particular photo come through as sold for $84,000. There is no identification as to what old department store it may have been but the picture is loud and clear. I loved the stark clarity of it.
Doing a little investigating, I found this old photo of downtown Beebe Arkansas, a growing city that is about 20 miles from my town of Searcy. Once while in Beebe not too far back, I went into what I … (50 comments)
beebe: Sold house in Beebe Arkansas to a wonderful family. - 02/28/08 01:42 PM
This house has found an owner. A young family who liked the idea of commuting to Little Rock from Beebe has moved in. They were a delight to work with and loved the house from their first viewing. Best wishes in your new home, Mike and Shela!
This house is convenient to Little Rock Air Force Base, Cabot, Jacksonville, Little Rock, Conway, Searcy or where ever you may wish to commute. Beebe is a growing city. I can remember when it was ruled by a few old city fathers and they cared nothing about being progressive.
Things have changed. Beebe is now … (1 comments)
