Driving in downtown Searcy AR today is totally different. This view of Arch Street South of the courthouse looks very wide. Go there now and with huge pickup trucks parked on each side it does not look very wide. This view seems to show dirt streets, antique vehicles, and a few people.
This one is dated. 1912. So which do you think came first? At first I thought the one in color was later but looking at it more closely I can see that the store beside Baugh's was brick in this one but appeared to be painted in the top one and the top one had more awnings. Perhaps this lower one was before we had horseless carriages! You tell me.
