SHIRLEY ..... HOW WELL I REMEMBER THORNTON'S!!!! DOES ANYONE REMEMBER THE LITTLE SNACK STAND OUTSIDE THE ROYAL. IT WAS ABOUT THE SIZE OF A PHONE BOOTH BUT HE HAD A LOT OF GOOD STUFF. ALSO I REMEMBER THE LOCK ON THE BOYS TOILET. A PIECE OF WIRE WRAPPED AROUND A NAIL. DO YOU REMEMBER THE LAUGH OF RALPH RAY THAT WAS VERY UNUSUAL AND COULD BE HEARD ALL OVER THE PLACE. THE SERIALS THAT WENT ON FOR ABOUT A DOZEN SATURDAYS AND ALWAYS A GOOD COWBOY MOVIE. WHEN MONEY WAS SHORT THERE WAS ALWAYS SOUTH SIDE PARK WITH VARIOUS GAMES ALL OVER THAT PARK. THE LAWSON GETZ JUNIOR BASEBALL TEAM WAS THE BEST KIDS TEAM I EVER SAW WITH MR WATTS MANAGING.

The Royal Theater was on my paper route. Cost 10 cents ..... COKE was 5 cents, popcorn 5 cents .... I remember because I collected 30 cents for delivering six afternoon papers to a customer each week ... 10 cents was mine to keep and only two customers would finance a trip to the movies!

If you had a quarter, you had a nickel left to buy an ice cream at the drugstore at Trigg and Lauderdale after the movie.

Anyone remember the great times at the Royal Theater? Red Ryder and Little Beaver on Saturday afternoons. And when we were very young, watching all the war news. Also Thornton's ice cream place on Trigg Ave. I know McCaskill remembers that one.

My father is Aubrey '45 and mom is Betty '45. Uncle was Frank Webb, ironhead, I believe was his nickname. Both parents are alive and well living in Waynesville, NC close to their granddaughter. An interesting event taking place on the Hillcrest '67 site is the conversations we're all relating to each other as the sons and daughters of parents who all lived in the south memphis area and attended the original Southside. What is so interesting from my perspective is all the people, places, things ya'll did as kids growing up in great south memphis. My classmates have numerous stories concerning their parents(ya'll) and the things ya'll did in your youth. My parents and I are constantly talking of their classmates, and its simply wonderful for me to be able to sit down and have these talks and I can see the gleam in their eyes when we speak of ooooold times. They wish ya'll all well and continued good health. I would certainly entertain any comments or replies to this correspondence and I'll pass them on to mom and dad. Also, my aunt attended southside and I believe her grad. would've been nearer the early 50's, her maiden name is Julia Webb. Thanks for any response and I wish ya'll all well.

Every time I visit this site so many good memories come back .... 1955 at Trigg and Lauderdale was the beginning of my afternoon paper route .... Sam Fuson, a real alien to all of us as he and his wife were from Michigan, owned the drug store. Nickle juke box, soda fountain and all .... Elvis records and Little Richard. He was an antique gun collector and I went to auctions with him .... have two Confederate rifles I bought for $5 apiece still today .... and a few more items in a collection of Civil War artifacts .... All the old haunts, Royal Theater costed a dime ..... Capital was for hot dates at 25 cents ... until you could drive .... then off to the Bellevue drive in. Walking home from Crump stadium with a stop at Leonard's. We were so lucky to be a part of the fifties as teenagers.
