Editorial Reviews

Review

“Every corner of the state is included . . . a real treasure for travelers and celebrants of Arkansas and American history.� —Bill Worthen, director, Historic Arkansas Museum

From the Inside Flap

In this visual history—the Hanley brothers’ most extensive book yet—readers will trace many towns’ humble beginnings, with wooden-frame structures lining rutted dirt streets teeming with wagons, horses, and mules. The evolution of towns such as Walnut Ridge, Bentonville, Little Rock, and Lake Village, as well as tiny hamlets such as Black Rock and Ponca, unfolds before readers’ eyes. Scenes from the 1950s feature stores such as Ben Franklin, OTASCO, and Western Auto. Success stories of Main Street preservation and revitalization in El Dorado, Siloam Springs, Conway, and Harrison show how local elders have set an example for other towns.

Format: Paperback
Steven and Ray Hanley are the ultimate as collectors of old postcards. Their knowledge in this area translates into a fascinating social history in their new book, Main Street Arkansas. Dozens of images show how towns all across the state of Arkansas developed and how the concept of "the main street" was central to business and social life. If you grew up in Arkansas, or have relatives there, you're going to want to add this book to your collection of family history.

Format: Paperback
Arkansas is a state which much of the country doesn't truly understand. "Main Street Arkansas: The Hearts of Arkansas Cities and Towns - As Portrayed in Postcards and Photographs" provides a glimpse at the state throughout history that many can't even pronounce properly. Using postcards as snapshots of history and the main street of its city, it provides a unique picture of the state's advancement, with a focus up to World War I. "Main Street Arkansas" is a must for those who want to better understand Arkansas or who just love the state.

Format: Hardcover
I'm glad to have this book, but the reproduction is fair to poor. Many of the photos are "muddy" looking - dark colors and contrast are lacking.
