Can anyone name the type of tree that grows in the front courtyard of Lauderdale Courts in Memphis?

No, as Bill said it cannot be identified from that photo. But having passed that housing complex (perhaps tens of) thousands of times I can tell you that the trees I remember planted around the property were the ubiquitous oak and tulip poplar. I lean to it being poplar.
I find myself most amusing.

Well, there were two years in Idaho in between. Think of it as a gradual reintroduction to civilized life.

My office in Memphis for eight years was perhaps a mile from the tree in question.

While you were in Idaho for 2 years, you had an office in Memphis for 8 of those years? And Idaho was along the bus route? Time/space travel? Rolling on the floor laughing

No, no, no...in order of my working schedule:
I was in Seattle for 20+, San Francisco for 6+, Memphis for 8 (it o n l y seemed like 20+), Boise for 2 to -the-day, whereupon I said "I never want to see an airplane again" and moved to France; three years ago yesterday. Wait, the day before. Whatever. Keep up, would you?

Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Love it! There are a lot of dirty dishes all over the world but I suspect you don't need an office to wash dishes. (But I'll keep that to myself)

Hi John from Oz here...I visited Google Maps for a better street view image...the twiggy nature of the branchlets reminded me of Ginkgo biloba ("Maidenhair Tree")...however, your photo showed leaves that did not perhaps match...give the courts a call and ask them what they know...Cheers...JB
