Quattlebaum Music Robersons Drug historic photo

Recognize these locations?

Here it is 2019 and Searcy is having a great time having new murals painted downtown, winning a contest for lots of money, and having new people come to town, love the town, and work to keep the town alive and vital.

So these two buildings are the SAME buildings.  They come from my old issue of White County Centennial Edition of The Daily Citizen and White County Citizen, given to me by Letain DeVore, and published in 1936.

 The picture on the right above was Robertson's Drug Store in 1936.  (It is now Quattlebaum Music.)  Notice the corner entrance door and the drive- through or walk-through side window.  

Now look at the picture on the left!  As it looked 30 years earlier!!  I can't tell about an entry but the upstairs is delightfully the same.  Perhaps someone can give us more information on whether the entrance was moved.  

PS.  Does that third store on the right say Retail Liquor Store???  I can't make it out for sure.

Good afternoon Barbara. Your photos continue to take my breath away. I love anything old and history really matters.

Yes the 3rd store does say "Retail Liquor Store" below the Coke sign. I zoomed into the image after downloading. I wonder if it was part of Bramlett's Cafe since the Coke sign seems to run into the cafe name.

Morning Barbara.

It has been a long time since I've been to Searcy.  If I ever get back over there I'll call you.  Maybe we can get some lunch and you can fill me in about more things Searcy

Keith, too bad that we don't have an authority on the 1936 layout of Searcy AR.  More people comment on facebook so we'll see if anyone has answers to our questions.
