Postcard from STAX and Graceland

Last day in Memphis so we went for a walk around the old town and found a park, not much space for a game of ball.

While we were waiting for it to open we went for a wee plod. Funny place, the Beauty Parlour is a bit different from the one at the top of our street, no?

In the museum there was a car that belonged to Isaac Hayes the guy who sang Shaft. I think it would be stripped for parts if it was parked at our bit.

A another funny thing we found. A terrible album from a wee lassie fray Rothsey! Who would have known.
