In the mid-1930's my uncle, Bob Ewing, installed the first frozen custard machine in Memphis across from the Fairgrounds. It was a stand-alone building shaped like an ice-igloo and was called The FROZEN CUSTARD. There were two snowball-tossing bears on either side of the window where one ordered cones of custard. Many years later (1950's) the building was incorporated into the Fairview drive-in restaurant and the original bears were removed and replaced eventually by the ones there now. My uncle worked for the man who innovated the idea of soft ice cream and installed machines all over the eastern part of the U.S. He lived just one block from the Frozen Custard stand at 927 East parkway, That house was just razed in November of 2014. Lots of great memories over the years in that vicinity. Charlie lambert
