Strolling Down Central Avenue - 8

Recall the days when people got all "gussied up" to go shopping as you browse our collection of photographs taken along Central Avenue in downtown Hot Springs, Arkansas.

Photographers from Hot Springs studios would take candid photos of people on the street.  As you passed by the photographer, he would hand you a ticket that could be used to purchase your postcard print at one of several studios around town.  Thousands of these images were taken by Stonecipher's Deluxe Studio, Coffey's Camera Shop or the Petty Studio.

Photos can be submitted by sending the scanned image in an email to the MPGS webmaster or by bring photos to the MPGS Library.

STROLLING DOWN CENTRAL AVENUE HAS BEEN DIVIDED INTO SECTIONS TO SPEED UP LOADING TIME. PLEASE BE SURE AND VISIT ALL PAGES.

Photographs in the Melting Pot Genealogical Society collection have been submitted by the families of the subjects and are not to be copied or otherwise used without the express permission of the MPGS or the submitter.  If you are interested in becoming a member of the MPGS, go to the member's application.
