Dogpatch

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.

Meat, it's what's for dinner…

Not only an interesting image from the subject standpoint but also a technical one. Looks to be a light leak across the bottom of the frame. Could be a processing or print issue but tend to think the former. Gives the image an even creepier or ominous feel. Found in a thrift market in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

Douglas A3D Skywarrior

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.

Proletariat produce

The Soviet Union had excellent literacy programs. Their subjects needed to read proficiently in order to understand the propaganda posters on their way to the wall before being shot. Another page from a Soviet era booklet that was found in a thrift store in Springdale, Arkansas.
