No.1: Where Tupelo Babies Were Born

Many of my generation began their lives in Tupelo at the Tupelo Community Hospital which looked as it was pictured in this postcard from the 1950s. You'd never recognize the place nowadays. The structure shown above is now completely enclosed (but still existing, I think) within a series of more modern building additions that have taken place through the years. It is one huge place now, and still growing. Don't bother trying to look it up in the phone book as the Tupelo Community Hospital, either. It was renamed the North Mississippi Medical Center years ago to reflect its more regional footprint. To see what it looks like now and to read a description of what our little community hospital has become, check out the link below:

  1. Wow, truly an illustration of modernization. Even the sky has changed since 1950, no clouds. (ha ha)
