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.

Fashion Sense

One of the more impressive images I’ve obtain. Just guessing, but it would not be a stretch to say this dress is a cultural symbol of her heritage. A stunning embroidered coat/dress that shows the craftsmanship of it’s day. Suitable dress for a prim and proper lady. Date is unknown but it appears older than most. No information was provided on this photograph. Found in a thrift shop in Tontitown, Arkansas.
