Mountain Valley Spring Water company based in Hot Springs (Garland County) was first known as Locketts Spring Water; the name was changed in 1871. Many famous personalities have enjoyed the water, including Elvis Presley and thirteen U.S. presidents. In the twenty-first century, company sales each year exceed 50 million gallons of water worldwide. The postcard shown here, featuring Marilyn Morgan (Miss Arkansas at the time), commemorates the companys centennial year in 1971.
