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.

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.
