We think it is pretty amazing that the Lawrence County Chapter of Circle of Friends raised $47,000 for Arkansas Children's Hospital. This is especially impressive since the group raises an amount similar to this almost annually through their Tips for Tots fundraiser, held this year on March 5. See related story and photos on page 13A.
Pictures of the Past
Last week's photograph showed a ferry traveling east at the junction of Black and Spring Rivers. In this shot, the same ferry is traveling west toward Black Rock between 1937 and 1941. Two houseboats are docked in the background and a line of cars are waiting to board on the opposite bank. A bus from the Missouri-Arkansas Coach Lines can be seen on the ferry, packed with passengers. (Pictures of the Past is a cooperative effort of The Times Dispatch and the Lawrence County Historical Society. Readers are encouraged to submit historic photos.)
