Memphis: McKellogg Residence (Location Key)


Before sending him back to Frenchman's Bend, Mrs. McKellogg takes the Grier boy to her place in Memphis for a meal. She lives with her husband (an Army colonel) in a large apartment building with an elevator and a human operator, but the boy is unfamiliar with that kind of place. "I looked at it," he says about the building, "and if all that was her house, she sho had a big family. But all of it wasn't." To him the elevator is "a little room without nothing in it but a nigger dressed up in a uniform," and he is astonished when "the whole little room jest went right on up" to her floor ("Two Soldiers," 98-99).
