Home for unwed girls

There was a home in Memphis, between Evergreen and Summer Ave., in the late sixties, (location debatable). Is it still standing, in operation, just what???

An old (circa 1925) panaramic picture

Last year, my Aunt Martha Bailey passed away. I was given several, family pictures and this one 'Shouts' at me. I am a genealogist and I would like to show you this old panoramic picture. It actually belonged to my grandmother. It's a church reunion I think and the old church, in the background, is on Memphis-Arlington Road (according to some). The picture has Aunt Martha in it at five years old. That being said, it puts the picture around 1925. How can I E-mail or bring this picture to you???
