Last week, Sandra Lee Drewry kindly donated digital copies of some of her family photographs. Most are class photos from local schools (view them in The Schoolyard), but this particular image appears to be a company picture. Can anyone help us identify it?

Pink Palace Collection
Inception: March 2011
Completion: September 2012
Size: 1473 images
Project Manager: Volunteer Becky Muska
Comments: Becky has gone above and beyond the call of duty while digitizing this collection. Not only has she made the collection publicly accessible for the first time, but she has done the research to give context to the treasures found within.
Citation: Medal of Honor
Future plans: Anything she wants to do. We’ll announce specifics to the public soon.
Sample images from this collection:
Memphis Streetscapes, one of our first digital collections, has been continuously growing since its inception in 2009. (A big thank you to Alice Kendall, Dallas Burkhardt and David Gildart for all of their hard work to add to the collection!)
Initially, Memphis Streetscapes was the digital home for images from the existing Memphis and Shelby County Room Photograph Collection, but now we are beginning to add images that have never before been available to the public.
Thanks to Josh Whitehead, Planning Director and Secretary of the Memphis and Shelby County Board of Adjustment, we now have never-before-seen images from the 1930s through the 1970s. These photos were submitted to the Board of Adjustment as part of the appeals process and provide some uniquely wonderful images of Memphis that we hope you will appreciate.
…we were in the midst of the Great Flood of 2011. Thanks to Ellery Ammons and Karen Kalnins (who has worked diligently on the historic photos), we now have a full collection of images from Memphis floods across the years – all available in the Mid-South Flood Collection.
The response to the project has been overwhelming. We have approximately 1000 photos in the collection and still more to add!
The University Libraries Digital Repository at the University of Memphis has created new photo galleries that are available to the public. Currently, three collections are available:
- National African American Photographic Archive
- Robert R. Church Family of Memphis
- Sanitation Workers’ Strike, 1968
We’re excited to announce that the Roy Cajero Photograph Collection has been added to Dig Memphis. Consisting of 211 images, mostly portraits, this collection tells many of the stories of the last three or four decades in Memphis.
Writers and rock stars, players and politicians – they’re all here. Even a few breakdancing librarians to top it all off!
