Spruce St downtown Mrs Harris Cafeteria historic photo

Here's an old photo of Spruce Street, Searcy AR.

M. D. Faith was one of the early real estate brokers in Searcy AR.  He and his wife have both passed and their home on Pleasure Street has just sold.  An estate sale was held and I dropped by.  There was an envelop with negatives in it from pictures made by him for his real estate sales or for his pleasure.  I have a friend who was able to print the pictures from the negatives (I returned the negatives to the heirs) and this is one of them.

Lots of people remember Mrs. Harris's cafeteria and will enjoy seeing the cafeteria plus the other businesses on Spruce Street. Now we can see how it appears on the court house photo today.  I don't know about you but I like the first look better.  The court house records also say it was built about 1900. The changes were made around 1994.

Looks like the negative had been become discolored with age. Here's the pic with restored color.

Thanks, Don!  Keep on helping me!  I wondered about the color.
