My Daddy, James Radford, graduated in the early 40's from South Side. He married Doris Nelson who graduated St. Agnes in 1944. They attended Daddy's 50th High School Reunion and had a great time but that was a good while agao! My parents are both still alive in Atlanta, GA and would enjoy hearing from anyone who knew Daddy (or my Mom)"back in the day"-770 446-8237. Call them and tell them to check their email! dorsie13@hotmail.com or dorsie13@gmail.com Thanks!

This site brings back a million memories, some i thought were forgotten. I have tried to explain to my grandchildren how things were back in the fifties, but their only frame of reference is "Happy Days' which I think is a little tame for how things actually were. I lived at the corner of Trigg and Florida, so my Saturday "haunt" was the Joy theatre where I would take my little brother, Gerald Waymon, SS '51 and 25 cents each to see a double feature, a serial, cartoons, news of the world and previews of the coming week. We would get there when the movie opened, spend our 10 cents to get in with a nickle each for popcorn, drink and candy which if the movies were good sometimes lasted through the 2nd show. People now are amazed that movies did not clear out after the first shows and you could stay til they closed if you wanted to! Also, amazing, the fact that at 10 years of age we walked, all alone, through what today is one of the scariest neighborhoods in Memphis and no one ever thought twice about all the mayhem going on today. And, during WWII, we were all of one mind, all patriots and totally committed to our country....which may be why when Korea broke out, both my brother and i joined the Marine Corps.
I never see any postings from anyone in my class and wonder where they are today. I know Lewis Pritchet lives in Florida and still conducts motivational speeches but don't know of any others. Would love to hear from any of you. Connie

Do any of you old codgers remember the Billups Oil Co on Bellevue? I remember buying gas there in 1960 for 21.9 cents per gallon....what has happened? They also sold oil in quart jars that had been filtered!

Reply: Of course I remember the Billups Oil Co. In the summertime I walked past it almost every day on my way to Bellevue Park. Do you remember the service station right across from the wading pool on the southwest corner of Trigg and Bellevue. They had the coldest drinks in town!
