3rd and College Street in Stuttgart, Arkansas-in 1918

I descend from many farmers and it is rare to find their address on Google Maps. However, it's always interesting to take an address from a relative and see if I can map their location. As discussed earlier, my uncle Ben Goldenstein farmed his family's property in Stuttgart, Arkansas. His World War I draft card provided his street address:

This is the modern Google Map of that address (3rd and College Street in Stuttgart, Arkansas):

Gives me a reasonable idea--although I'm not certain if he lived on the corner or which one. It's possible that he lived where the apparent vacant lot is located. But the picture was still pretty interesting.
