"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!
