Here on S.Main in 1959 is the 1st Planter's Peanut Shop in Memphis (the one still open on S.Main is the 2nd one) . Lots of movie houses close by. Closest is the big marquee of The Strand. A few doors down past Perel & Lowenstein's Jewelers is the Loew's State. On down, across the street, you can see The Princess with The Malco just past it across Beale Street. Mr.Peanut is standing outside, probably trying to decide which show to go see...

Looking east on Union around 1954 past the Worsley Piano Co. is the 2nd Britling Cafeteria to open in Memphis with the magnificent Loews Palace just past that. The big building on down a bit with the sign on the very top is the Peabody Hotel.
