Stone Mountain Grocery 1954

Aesthetically, a very good photograph. Focused, rich in tone and contrast. You don’t find many photographs that are this nice. If one looks closely, they will see a small baby doll between the fuel pumps. Found in a thrift market in Springdale, Arkansas. No information provided other than what can be seen on the front. One Dollar for 3.5 gallons of fuel! There seems to be a Stone Mountain “neighborhood” just east of Fayetteville that may have been a township type thing back in the day. Other than that, all that can be found with a search of the internet is – of course – Stone Mountain, Georgia. I’m sure there are hundreds of “Stone Mountains” throughout the country. The world may never know.

Houston, we have lift off!

The words “AF Museum” are found on the back of this old photograph. Air Force would be the only explanation that comes to mind. Would like to say this is a 1950s image but it can’t be verified. Found in a thrift store in Rogers, Arkansas.

Winter Wonderland

It won’t be long until Old Jack Frost makes an appearance. I’m hoping for a hard Winter here in Northwest Arkansas. The frilled edges and attire of the boy leads one to believe this was taken in the 1940s or early 1950s. But since there isn’t anything on the back of the photograph, it is only a guess. The object to the left looks like a very large flagpole? This group of photos are from up north somewhere. It never grows tiring looking at the houses from that era. Just beautiful. We need more steps and service porches today. Found in a thrift market in Lincoln, Arkansas.

A White Sport Coat

A good guess of the date of this photograph would be late 1950s or early 1960s. This lady with the fabulous hair looks to be the same in the post Lady and Dog. This was part of a large collection of a family found in a thrift store at Eureka Springs in late 2018. No other information provided.
