Baby picture from 1939. Supertex Photo Service Dallas Texas. Hope Cottage Searcy AR

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Advantage

There's a new place to shop in Searcy Arkansas.  It is called Hope Restored and is located at 509 East Race Suite 4 in the little shopping center.

 

When you go in to shop take a big box of things to donate because the sales benefit Hope Cottage, a home for battered women.  I was in there yesterday and found a few old photographs that had been donated.  They don't know who gave them or who the folks are but you know that I love old photos! 

Look at this jewel.  The porch has a rocking chair and the chair has a lace cover!  The baby has a little curl and we can't tell if baby is a boy or girl because it seems that both used to wear dresses at this age.  Dresses would have made diaper changing much easier.

Look also at the old wood both on the floor and on the house.  On the back is a stamp saying Supertex Photo Service, "Quality With Economy"  Apr 1939  Dallas  Texas.  Strangely, the scan picked up some color and there was none in the picture.  Don't you just love this child!!

Go in and shop and you'll find friendly people who appreciate you.

Anita, you don't have to take a box of donations.  It is just fun to go in and see what they have.  Usually I will leave with a few toys for the step great grandchild.  And books!

How about the kewpie doll hair style?

  I have heard the name  Kewpie a long time but I had to look it up for history.

A cupid comic strip character created by artist and writer Rose O'Neill in her comic strip created in 1909.  O'Neill began to illustrate and sell paper doll versions of the Kewpies. The characters were first produced as bisque dolls in Waltershausen, Germany beginning in 1912, and became extremely popular in the early twentieth century.

Thank you, Don, for our history lesson for today. Can't believe you didn't include a Kewpie doll picture (or two).

Don, I agree with Anita on the great history lesson.  I never knew that little curl on top was a kewpie kurl.  LOL
