Dirt streets Judsonia AR 1908 historic photo

1908 Judsonia AR historic photo main street

We can look at this photo and think about how things have changed for the better in the last 100 years.  Imagine traveling those mud streets of Judsonia AR.  

This is an old postcard that is on ebay right now.  Price is pretty high so I will not be buying but it would be good for Judsonia to have it in their historic collection.  A one cent stamp delivered it to Indianapolis, Indiana to a Mr. Robert Storm and I like the last sentence which says, "Whats the matter with you dead or married?"  

Postcards, when they become enlarged by scanning, as this one has been, show the detail much better. A click or two can enlarge for even better viewing.

Our little town of Judsonia has a lot of history and this would be a good addition.

I always enjoy seeing the old historic photos, especially if it is a place where I have seen the modern version.

thanks Barbara

Harry, so do I!

Bob, this place was blown away by a tornado in 1952 so it does have history!
