My Grandfather worked there from 1911 until 1973, 62 years. He was 90 years when he retired. I have photos of him there in the early 20's or possibly earlier. He got up at 5 am made his breakfast walked to the bus stop rode the bus to downtown Memphis. Walked to work and did the same in the afternoon rain or shine, sleet or snow. He was as slim at 90 as he was at 28 when he started there. They were good enough to let him work through the depression. He had 7 children. With only a 2nd grade education he was able to provide for his family and survive. He talked about seeing horse drawn fire trucks coming down Front st, and see in Mr Crump walking around the city campaigning for mayor. Sadly we didn't record enough of what he remembered.
