Important people at Searcy AR long ago

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Advantage

This picture has been loaned by Ramona Palmer Riddle, who grew up in Searcy Arkansas and knew everyone!  It even has the names on the back to tell us who they were.

City fathers in Searcy AR

Standing with the dirty apron was Bob Barlow and granddaughter.  Year was 1947

Left to right were J. C. Hart, J. B. Plant, Elzie Darden, Carthel Angel, Melvin Phelps, Bud Collins, Tom Walker, Bud Moye, Orvil Rouse, Emil Hart, M. M. Garrison, Hubert Coward, Bill Price, Harold Humphey, Harry Price, F. P. Girkin, "Fat" Westbrook, Jake Nelson and Sam Lanier.

Where was this taken?  Sleuths will surely say.

I enlarged and did a closeup of the guys so we can do a better scrutiny.

Now, there are two guys with the last name of Hart.  One may be the father to our Anita "Tart" Fuller.  And I really think the fourth from the front on the right is Henry Fonda.  sigh......drool.....

Notice the old old jukebox in the rear of the room!!

Anita, wonder what it was really like in the "wet" White County.  In the paper today there was a report of a 76 year old being arrested for "bootleggin' " in Searcy!  Did you see it?

I did see it, Barbara.

At the end of the day, at the Esso bulk plant in Searcy, Daddy and Gene Rice and probably some other guys would pour a little whiskey (Four Roses) in a coke bottle and sit around 'unwinding' from the day.  Naturally when he got home mother could smell liquor on his breath and would really light into him.  His reply was always the same, "I just had a little nip".....

Anita, that sounds familiar.  "Just a little nip..." was used all over the country.  TV may be the best thing that ever happened for families because the men could then come home and have a little nip as they watched TV.  Before TV home-life may have been a little boring.
