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.

1940’s image of a couple posing in front of a nature themed backdrop,
notice the tree trunk he is sitting on! The lady is wearing a pretty
dress but horrible shoes. LOL.
