 A friend and I were visiting an estate sale a few days ago.  The sale was for property from a very well known Searcy AR person who had passed away.  She had grown up in Searcy, moved away for years and years, and then moved back.  There in the house was hanging a white-looking jumpsuit thing wit...
The last one!  Promise!We have just had two birthday parties from many years ago on this blog.  I promise that this is the last one and it really needs to have someone tell us who these lovely girls (and we are down to two handsome boys) were.  Anita Hart, our little birthday queen, is in the mid...
Bear with me.  We were on the subject of birthday parties of the past and how much they brought out the dress clothes and the good manners for the youngsters.   Well, here we are with the possible same bunch of kids on the same street but just a little bit older.  Anita Hart Fuller is right there...
Remember days like this?  It is probably typical of parties held long ago.  All the kids are told to look this way for the picture but the sun is so bad on their eyes that they have to put the arm up.  Note all the shadows of the grownups looking on for the fantastic picture of the kids having a ...
Here is a great old post card showing a Searcy AR family visiting the world's tallest building.  As they climbed to the top, the photo guy was there to snap their picture and sell it to them.  The picture had to be made prior to 1972 because that is when the Empire State Building in New York lost...
Bicycles!How many of us can remember our first bicycles and how they were treasured and how we were so thrilled when we got one, even if it was a used one, beat-up and not beautiful!  I do!  It was there on the front porch of the old house we lived in.  My dad had sneaked it in there for me and m...
REMEMBER PHONE NUMBERS?  It was easy when they were small numbers.  Anita Hart Fuller, our blog source for so many things, has an old phone book with phone numbers and addresses. We thought it would be fun to see who had the first 10 phone numbers in Searcy and the locations.  We were unable to t...
It does not seem possible now but in 1978 and shortly before then a lady REALTOR was rare.  This picture comes from a 1978 Harding yearbook and shows the Action Real Estate Center at 2909 East Race Street in Searcy AR.  Lots of students are in front of it and in the background I believe we are se...
Here's another photo loaned by Anita Hart Fuller and it is also a very interesting one.  It shows three ladies standing outside a house (and we know which house it was) and posing for the photographer.  It has these names on the back. 1. ?  2. Ruth Fuller  3. Grace Neal.  So the person who wrote ...
Another treasure from Anita Hart Fuller's collection of pictures.This seems to be a post card with the congregation of First United Methodist Church posing in front of the historic church.  There is no date on it so we'd have to guess at the date.  The church windows seem different from the windo...
