Bonnie Kourvelas

Bonnie is a long time friend of this site and is also the Host and Segment Producer of TV's Southern Routes on PBS.

In a recent email, she had this to say along with sending some Mall pictures she had found in her archive!

I recently printed some sheets of negatives from 1980-82 that I shot while taking photography classes at Memphis State. This is Spencer's Gifts at the Mall of Memphis-- I'm pretty sure they were taken in December 1982. I'm not sure why I took them, just that I loved going to Spencer's and happened to have my camera with me that day. I remember someone telling me to stop taking pictures when I got inside, or else there would be more! :-) LOVE your website.

Thanks Bonnie! We love your pictures!!!
