Old postcard Robertson's Drug Store Searcy AR

Almost priceless picture of downtown Searcy AR landmark.

On ebay right now, priced at $23.75, is this wonderful postcard of the original  Robertson's Drug Store (now operated as Quattlebaum Music) in downtown Searcy AR.  It was established in 1860, according to the card.  I seem to have put this building up several times in this blog history.  Here's another view of it .

And check out this one that has a closer view of the window on the side.

Hi Barbara... I just adore old photos like this, especially of places I know well. Thanks for sharing this one of a Searcy landmark.

It still had the same corner door. Love this old building.

Hello Barbara - $23.75 for the postcard - wow!  I bet that price would surprise(and excite) the orginal owner of Robertson's Drug Store in Searcy Arkansas.  I imagine that might purchase a lot of inventory in those days.

I love old historic postcards that depict what places looked like in bygone days.

Morning Barbara.

Are you placing a bid on that card?  A bit pricey for my wallet
