Image Title: Memphis Music Neon Sign, Beale Street, Memphis, Tennessee, 2008

Creator: Highsmith, Carol M., 1946-, photographer

Date: 2008 October 11.

Notes: Beale Street has been playing the blues for more than half a century. Named after an unknown military hero in 1841, it acted as General Ulysses S. Grant's headquarters during the Civil War. But, Beale Street's heyday was in the 1920s, when the area took on a carnival atmosphere and gambling, drinking, prostitution, murder and voodoo thrived alongside the booming nightclubs, theaters, restaurants, stores, pawnshops and hot music.
