Searcy Bank, Searcy AR. A look back to cat-eye glasses and huge hair!

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Advantage

Searcy Bank Searcy AR

Here's another look at Searcy AR in 1967, taken from an old year book.  200 W. Race is the address of present-day Regions Bank. 

Look at the huge hair on the young women.  The lady in the background seems to have stuck with the older style hairdo. 

And cat-eye glasses!  I remember them but I can't remember the glasses making anyone look prettier. 

And, what's that thing on the right bottom?  I suppose it's a raised ash-tray? 

Perhaps someone in the Sleuth Club can actually identify these folks.

Don't recognize anyone but then I wasn't in Searcy in 1967. I think that is an ashtray thingee and it would have sand in it.

Hi Barbara,

I barely remember those days. A friends mother wore cat eye glasses up to the early eighties!

Anita, it was a great picture of the lady's hair....the one with her back to the camera.

Wayne and Jean Marie, I don't believe I ever wore cat-eyes but I was just not very fashionable.

Hi Barbara, I just used a photo of my dad around 1935 in a blog. Love the old photos as well. Thanks for sharing.

hi Barbara,

I remember the high haired ladies but had completely forgotten about that style of glasses!  must have blocked it from my memory.

Sarah and Lester, I tried to find your blog with your dad but was unsuccessful.  Share a link.

Bill, I remember thinking a new person that I met was so unattractive.  Once she got rid of the cat-eyes, she was lovely!
