Van Atkins Searcy AR 1960 Department store


Remember Van-Atkins?

Of course we remember Van-Atkins Department Store which was downtown just off the square.  They had everything at some time and I believe they replaced the old Robbins-Sanford store.  I like this picture because it is so clear showing how dusty the car was, how it was probably without air-conditioning because of the rolled down window and remembering how  guys used to meet downtown and chat. 

And look at the parking meter!  It has been a long time since we had those.  This picture was taken from the ads in the 1960 Searcy High School yearbook.  Someone can surely tell us what the car model was and someone may even recognize the men in the picture.

There is something about those old sepia or black and white photos that catapult the mind right back to that era.
