ca. 1947: Memphis Cotton Carnival

Ah, the majesty of the Memphis Cotton Carnival, forerunner to Carnival Memphis, from 72 years ago. These four young men, who served as royal pages to Carnival Queen Daisy Fisher, stood proudly, ready to do their queen’s bidding. What fun! What plumes! What great shoes!  From left to right: Tom Kimbrough, Scott Fisher, Richard Hussey and David Snowden.
