Serving the 21 Counties of West Tennessee

The Memphis Public Library needs your help! Images from their digital archive that are missing important details. See if you can help us fill in some of the gaps.
DIG MEMPHIS MYSTERIES will look a little different going forward. We’ll be posting mystery “seasons” – a multi-week series of mysteries, all centered around a common theme. If you suggest an answer, please share with us how you solved the mystery. Include your name, and we’ll give you credit on the record in the DIG archives. To keep up to date with all DIG MEMPHIS MYSTERIES, follow us on Instagram at @digmemphishistory!
