Beebe train station old photo ebay

This picture is for sale on ebay right now and I must admit that I find it very interesting and enticing.  The old train station is shown in the approximate 1920's according to the offering on the ebay site.   Some of those buildings in the photograph may still be there. If so perhaps some Beebe expert will be able to tell what they were.  I am wondering if this filling station is the one that is shown in the picture below.

Don't think so.

You be the judge.

Don, I pulled it up too and admit it does not look much like it.  But after almost 100 years it may have changed.  We need someone who knows Beebe better to tell us.  We need a Beebe Sleuth.

I went to Beebe and tried to find a spot almost like this one.  Here's what I found.

So the old filling station is probably the only building remaining.  Those big nice houses area gone and the railroad tracks are so built up and the road is so wide that it is difficult to get the exact spot.
