Memphis Movie houses downtown Memphis 1950's
Dr. Flinn ;
I knew that I had these and just found them filed away
Warner 1 ; check out that Ford with the Sun roof
and a small Pop Tunes record shop to the left
seems I remember at one time the D J Bob Neil
and his sons had that small record shop
about the time Elvis got started ; maybe Pop Tunes
had it later ?
Lowe's Palace ; and it what those old movie houses were
like inside . I loved to walk around inside of them after the movie
and see just how grand they were . 57 Chevy in front
seems maybe the reason for these photos is that in the 1950's
Memphis had several Nations titles
and I see signs that the movie houses were helping to promote
these weeks ; along with Safety Week
Strand 2 ; Planters Peanut shop to the left
Cashews .39 cents per pound
remember the Peanut man would stand outside
and give you a sample ? I always went in and bought some .
That was the idea .
