Last post of the month and the last of three vintage stickers recently purchased at a thrift market in Eureka Springs. Dogpatch was one of the first memories I have of Arkansas. Not only an Al Capp cartoon, it was a theme park located at the then-isolated area of Newton County, Arkansas.
Back in the 1970s, my old man had a filling station and one of the coolest things about it was all the tourist brick-a-bract. For the longest, there was a sticker carousal that was filled with awesome stickers. I has this sticker as a kid. Memories. Found (and quickly purchased) in a thrift store in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.
One would have to say, probably so. A tear print which would make this a Polaroid of some type. I’m not real familiar with those older model cameras. No other information provided. Found in a thrift store in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.
I believe this is an M1 Garand .30-06. That would make the image sometime from the 1930s. The M1 was produced from 1934-1957. No other information available. Found in a thrift market in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
Always amazed at the style during America’s prime. Things had an elegance about them that is all but gone, for the most part, these days. Built to last and made here in America. We had a lot of pride in our craftsmen, laborers and designers. Maybe it will make a comeback. Date unknown but it is an older one. Found in a thrift store in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.
These were part of a large set of “postcards”. Actually, they have blank, gray backs. Possibly a collector’s set of cards? Dunno. This jet-powered strategic bomber was produced from 1956–1961. So, whatever this “card” is, they had to be released somewhere around that time. Here is the Wiki page of this aircraft. Quite an interesting history.
