Robert Johnson Living In Memphis - Part 2 (11/24/2023)

I made a 10 minute trip from home to the place where Robert Johnson lived in Memphis, and wanted to share the photos as a follow-up.  Sadly, the second house behind the "big house" is now ashes.  I'd hoped there would be some sort of foundation so I could see the layout of the house, but there wasn't.  At least the big house is still there.

These next few photos look toward the ravene where the family would swim and play in the water.

This is the sight of Sister Carrie's house, the last place Robert Johnson performed in Memphis before his untimely death.  To the right are the train tracks that he used to go to and hop the trains to travel to Arkansas and Mississippi.
