What it wuz....wuz football in Searcy AR 1956. Creative ads in the program.

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Advantage

Someone gave my husband an old 1956 football program that had lots of football players and their pictures in the advertisements.  Here are two of the ads.  They seem more creative than most.  I like the way Headlee Drug Store says that if you are looking for "him" or for "her" you'll find anyone there because it was the hangout.

 

I also like the "Ole Po-Dunk and his gang" ad saying that you could always come in and the boys would have something to say. 

Wonder who was in charge of this football program?  And are the present ones this creative?

Those are some fun ads and photos.  It does take us back.

Here is another one.  He is a contributor to this blog from time to time.  Perhaps he can tell about the Beebe Badger vs. Searcy game!

Very interesting.

I am assuming that your husband was number 35 and his family was or is in the auto business.

Love old memorabilia .

Memories, light the corners of your mind.

Tim, thanks for stopping by!

Erv, you guessed right.  I think the older we get the more we appreciate memories.  Thanks for commenting.
