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.

Elderberry Inn

The Elderberry Inn – K.C. Steer Steak Dinners. I searched for information on the internet about this place but like the photograph itself, it provided no clue(s) to the origins of this image. Do you know? Close inspection reveals the dark dressed woman bottle feeding a deer. Looks to be the 1940s. Found in a thrift store in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Danger…Keep Out

This well behaved youngster takes their job seriously by guarding what looks to be a greenhouse or possibly a zoo exhibit with a double-barrel shotgun. “Fritz” won’t be stealing any of our state secrets as long as this whippersnapper has a say in the matter. I’m presuming this is somewhere around the 1940s. No other information is provided on the image. Found in a thrift store in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Current events

A very well dressed young man catches up on all the daily news by relaxing in his favorite chair with the newspaper. How times have changed. No information provided on back. Date unknown. Found in a thrift store in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Granny Goes Fishing

I wasn’t able to make out the words before the date on this one. Can’t tell if it is a name of a town or the individual. Could be March, as in the month. Obviously, the date was 1963. Anyway, looks like Granny slayed a mess of Crappie…and thems good eatin’. Found in a thrift shop in Lincoln, Arkansas.
