One more for the road


The liquor was flowing in this pic. I see a box of food and a bottle
of Old Hickory Bourbon. Check the dude in the middle of all these women

Great picture of a young kid getting his studio picture
in at the Memphis Zoo. Could have been a class trip since June 24, 1954
was a Thursday.
