Remember Ben Franklin?
This old postcard on ebay brings back memories. There in the middle of the block stands the Ben Franklin store and then somewhere around the block was the Sterling's store. Were they both what we called "Dime" stores back then? I believe the store to the left of Ben Franklin's was a shoe store and there's Security Bank on the corner. Cars were colorful then vs. ones today.
The old parking meters do bring back memories. Wasn't there a job for a person to go around and mark how long a vehicle had been parked? You could get a ticket!
Now a question.....what was that tall thing way back in the picture? It would be down close to Spring Park but I can't remember anything like that. Perhaps it is actually a sign attached to what is now Quattlebaum's Music? Searcy Sleuths will remember!
