Remembering the Marketplace of the Midsouth

The Mall of Memphis Zamboni

In 1982, the mall's Zamboni was an odd and unusual site to southern shoppers who had never seen (and often never heard of) such a thing. This is the "original" Zamboni according to David Smith, one of our mall story contributors.

The Zamboni was invented by a man named Frank Zamboni when he needed a better way to surface ice for skating.
