BB King club on Beale street in Memphis

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Beale Street is more or less closed to traffic. BB King is a dominant club on this short stretch of these 2-3 blocks entertainment district.


Tourist are rare in early December, they are outnumbered by friendly con-artist. Meet friendly giant Terence or Big T, who cuts roses in a nearby park and tries to sell them to tourist, rising money for Vietnam veterans, or George who is just coming from hospital, where his wife is in coma after car accident, and he needs money to get home to the kids. These guys are wonderful story tellers/ actors, their stories well rehearsed, almost believable! With the southern accent, they are characters right out of Tennessee Williams play!

I have never been to Memphis, but this shot and your description sort set the scene; kinda cool, little bit sleazy. Like27.

Would make another great addition to the group Goggle Maps World Cities as we are looking for more photos from the Americas.

Greetings, Mark
