Those Places Thursday: Hot Springs and Little Rock, AR

I love old postcards.

Two here from Hot Springs back in the day. Hot Springs is in Garland County, and was home to several of my relatives from southern Arkansas.

And Little Rock in 1908. I wish Center Street still looked like this today.

Governor's Mansion

The Little Rock postcard is looking south from 16th street. Today that look's directly at the Governor's Mansion, which is built on the site of the former School for the Blind. If you Google "Little Rock School for the Blind" and look at the images, you can find an image of the old building. -Heather
