Frozen Cumberland

It’s been a while since this has happened!
My Dad remembers driving a car across this!

Photo from Nashvillle Memories by University Of Tennessee Press

“shall never forget. .I had been uptown with my buddy going to the Krystal and having 2 hamburgers and a RC cola (15 cents) then a cowboy movie at the Rex (10 cents). . . Somebody had a model T on the ice as I walked over the Shelby St Bridge going to my Fatherland St. home. .I could’t resist so I walked on the ice. My father asked me if I had done such a foolish thing and of course I said no.The NASHVILLE BANNER the next afternoon had a picture of people walking on the ice. .guess who was in the foreground. . .I still feel that spanking! “-Jim Sloan from nashlinks.com


Here is a photo shared by David Lewis. Featured are brother and sister Charles
and Thelma Lewis in 1940. You can see the power plant and the Train Trestle in the background.
Apparently they spent some time playing in the snow and ice in Shelby Park.
