May Day Parade Searcy AR Spring St 1912 postcard

May Day Parade on Spring Street looking North, Searcy AR.

This wonderful old card is available on ebay right now.  I think I may have used it in a blog before but we probably have new viewers.  ( https://activerain.com/blogsview/3389859/two-great-searcy-arkansas-cards-for-sale-on-ebay---may-day-celebration-)    We did!!  Please do read all the comments on the location and information about the picture when you go to this early blog.

Interesting is the Tom Keene cigar sign on the brick building.  Also interesting would be the possible location of what is now Mayfair Hotel.  If you go to the ebay site they have pictures that are nicely enlarged.  The mailing was in 1912 with the normal message, "How are you doing?  We are doing fine."  That was the way cards, letters, etc., were always started!  Check it out if you collect cards!

Don, you are still the BEST research person on this blog.  I have about 1800 blogs out there and sort of forget which ones I have done.  They do pull up well in searches, though.

Hello Barbara - I find the cigar sign interesting because of its prominent placement as well as its design.  I hope your loyal Searcy Arkansas sleuths help fill in more missing blanks.

Michael, it does seem to be a strange place for a cigar sign.  I probably should google it.
