ca. late 1930s - early 40s: "Winter is Coming”

It seems appropriate here in what are hopefully the last of the "dog days” of Memphis summer, to mention that our oppressive heat does, in fact, end at some point. Pictured here is John McKinnon Sr. (1924-1997) practicing his snowball making skills in the front of his home at 1979 Vinton Avenue in Central Gardens.

Photograph courtesy of and story by John McKinnon, Jr.
