Headlee Drug Store Searcy AR 1936 historic picture

"Head-in at Headlee's"

These photos are from The White County Centennial of The Daily Citizen and White County Citizen that was published in August 1936, a long time ago.  I like the drug store picture and the phrase underneath the picture.  Second picture shows the interior with several people.  Lots of shirts and ties.  Were they employees?  Customers?  And then there is the picture of the owner, Frank Headlee, with a little bragging that he was not just the genial proprietor but also the president of the Searcy Kiwanis Club.  

On the side of the building, signs say DRUGS.....SODA.....CURB SERVICE....LUNCHES and something else that I can't see well enough to interpret.  I am impressed that they had a drive-through (or walk-through) at such an early date. 

If Searcy Sleuths have something to add to this blog, we'd love to hear it!

Hello Barbara - what a fun find.  I imagine that Headlee Drug Store was a thriving part of Searcy AR.  Especially in and around 1936.

Morning Barbara.

I can remember going into such a place when I was young.  It was in Russellville, Arkansas right on Main Street

Sheila, thanks!

Michael, it probably was.  And I wish we could still have those huge hand-painted signs on buildings.

James, each town probably had one!
