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.

I am the oldest son of Tommy Jones and Faye Russell. My uncle was Johnny Jones and one of my aunts was Shirley Russell. I really enjoy reading all of the memories all of you have written about. I remember a grocery store, I think it was on S. Lauderdale, named DiSalvo's. Does that sound right to anyone? Mom and Dad always loved South Side and spoke of many whose names I have seen on this site. To add a little bit of another connection, Elmer Ray was my coach in high school at Whitehaven. The very first football game that I ever attended, Dad took me to see South Side play Messick at Crump Stadium. Billy Fletcher was the quarterback. I've loved football ever since.

Last period with Mr. Richardson .... on the ground floor .... most the guys would skip out about half way through the class a litle later he (Mr. Richardson) would say something like "Class is getting small,huh". The last ime I saw him, the trio was singing at the veterans home and he was a patient there. Who could forget Ms.Allensworth and her rubber girldle that she use to snap when she got upset. The best one though was Miss Annie Kay Tharpe..english. She use to quote "Experience is a dear school but, a fool will learn in no other". Back then I don't think any of us had a clue, ask me now.

Hello to all

Dolpho Fratini owned the Weona store #29 at James and McLemore. All of the Tidwell boys worked there at one time, Robert, Happy, and Chic. When they got to old my brother Dick Sutton worked there and then I followed him. George Bruno owned the store at College and McLemore. Mr. Fratini's father in law owned the #29 store before him. Mr Ugolini was a partner in the #29 store. He was married to Adolpho's wife's sister. They also owned a Liberty Cash at the corner of Lauderdale and Trigg on the NW corner.
