Medical Center

Use to do a lot of graphic design and always was in the market for older images to scan and incorporate into work. Those days have long gone by but I’ve kept all the old postcards collected over the years. Anyway, this looks to be 1950s or 1960s era postcard material.

Just a-doin’ my job, I’m The Highway Patrol.

Macon is a small town in upper northeast Missouri. Close attention shows the gentleman with the officer to have his hand on the patrolman’s gun. The car would likely make this a photograph from the 1930s. Didn’t find much online about the Swansson Drug Store other than this link to a bottle label from that era. Did you know that the famous Elko print was from a store in Kansas City, Missouri? In the 1967 film adaptation of Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood, the killers purchase a movie camera from an Elko Camera Store. This print was found in a thrift store in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

Tygard Tripp 4H

Probably early-to-mid 1960s. Color Slide. This appears to be an image from the small town of Butler, Missouri. The signs on the parade float say Tygard Tripp 4H. Tygard and Tripp are found on Google Maps as former schools? Found in a thrift store in Tontitown, Arkansas.
