J.C. Humphries Store, Judsonia, 1888 – At the time this photograph was made, this was thought to be the oldest store in Judsonia. J.G. Humphries is shown standing by the left post next to his wife Mary, and sons Bert and Brad. Another son, Lester, is at extreme right. The photo is owned by Lynn Kiser of Searcy, Humphries’ granddaughter. She says the family told her about a small café in the back of the store. Note the Coca-Cola sign at far left.
