ca. 1958: Festival Garland Dance

This wonderful picture of young dancers all decked out in their tutus, ballet slippers and holding floral-festooned hoops, is part of the Nadia Price Collection at The Memphis Public Library and Information Center. Although we don’t know much about this particular photograph, we do know that Ms. Price was a premiere photographer in Memphis from the mid 1940s though the early 1970s. Memphians “of a certain age” will certainly remember her studio, Photography by Nadia, located on South Cooper Street. We welcome comments and/or information about this photograph, which is #84 in the Price Collection and simply titled “1958 Festival Garland Dance.”
