Very very old picture of Searcy Arkansas. You'd not recognize it!

 Searcy ARkansas

My friend Don sent this old postcard photo of Searcy and gives the following explanation of this Searcy Arkansas, White County picture.  Thanks Don.  It is a REAL oldie.   

Searcy AR


1911 May Day Parade
If you can't read that faint caption, it tells us that those were public school children marching, and that this was taken on Spring Street, looking north toward the Court House. The court house dome can just be seen through the utility pole cross bars.

The building on the left should be the Gill House built in 1882 and later replaced with the 
Mayfair Hotel in the early 1920s and  the building on the right should be the location of the  Plaza Theater later.

Barbara,  I really enjoyed viewing the pictures.  You are one of the most talented and interesting people I know.  Lots of people my age don't know how to email much less create a web site and make wonderful pictures.  You never cease to amaze me.  You are an inspiration to me and I'm sure to many others.  I'll continue to follow your  blog site with great anticipation!

Barbara,

I always enjoy looking at older pictures of a town......you get a true sense of the changes the "long timers" must feel having actually lived through the changes.....thanks for sharing
