Memphis Postcards Part 3

Since summertime is vacation season, and postcards are part of a vacation, here are two more of the antique Memphis postcards.  Other than the fact that the trees around the buildings on the Southwestern campus (renamed Rhodes College in 1984) are larger, the buildings and Lynx (Rhodes mascot) statues look much the same.  The bottom image is from the Memphis Zoo, but I am not sure if this building still remains.
