Classic Image of Memphis

Kail Tescar '72, discovered this awesome shot of Memphis of what appears to be from the 1920's or 30's.

This is by far the oldest image we have. Judging by the size of the trees in the front and the peculiar-looking building to the right of the school, this shot must've been taken soon after the third floor was added.  This image clearly shows the addition of the third floor as evidenced by the original roof line that you see between the second and third floors. If you look closely, you can even see Memphis Avenue in cobblestone!

Can someone help date this image? Click on this image to see our old school in its full size granduer!
