Last Friday while orienting the students to Mound Bayou, I noticed a partial emblem on the iron work design of the Bank of Mound Bayou Building. Without a specific name, I cannot locate anything on it, yet, as there were several Memphis iron works companies during the time period. If anyone recognizes the shield, please let me know.
Another detail that had escaped me earlier, was the Jones & Laughlin name on the beam. Jones & Laughlin was a major steel works company from the 1800s forward.
