May Day Parade on Main St at Court Sq in Memphis TN sometime in the 1880s (likely in 1883)
In May, 1863 the Gayoso Savings Institution that was robbed by the "mackerels" (Jake Ackerman and Tom Porter's Gang) was to the left of the telephone pole - this was a daring daylight bank robbery by 12-14 year old "street boys" that shocked the entire city - this is also one of the FIRST bank robberies in the US and was done by children in Memphis - amazing! and it happened in Memphis, TN!
