My friend James Whitlow, who has contributed so much to this blog, stopped by my office and left some beautiful photos.  The thing that made him give them to me is the name that is on them.  C. M. Collins, Searcy ARK.  This must have been a photographer in Searcy a long long time ago.  Look at the photos and see if you might remember any of the folks or the photography studio.

The last picture has been cut off at the bottom but I see no reason for it to have been different from the others.  Here is a closeup of the name at the bottom of the pictures.  So see if you know who these folks were and let's thank James for sharing them with us.

Thanks, Don.  I guess we know about how old these pictures are now and wish we knew who the people in the pictures were.  James Whitlow didn't tell me where he found the pictures.
