Memphis -- the birthplace of the Blues and world-famous barbeque -- has a soul like no other city in America's Mid-South. It's home to FedEx, the first Holiday Inn, and Graceland. Experience it all for yourself in the new title from the best-selling Then and Now series: Memphis Then and Now.

- Amazing then-and-now photographs of Memphis' most popular sites take readers on an intimate tour of the city, from the mighty Mississippi River to Beale Street and beyond.
- Make a pilgrimage to Memphis' most famous residence -- Elvis Presley's Graceland -- and see what it was like before it became the palatial home of America's "King."
- While many of Memphis' old buildings were lost to bulldozers during the Depression, many were saved by the National Register of Historic Places.
- Three blocks of Beale Street have been designated as historic landmarks. Fascinating photographs capture monuments like the First Baptist Beale Street Church, Greener's Dept. Store, and the Palace and New Daisy Theater.
- Pay homage to the birthplace of the blues, soul and rock and roll at legendary locales like Stax Records and the Sun Record Company where Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison and Jerry Lee Lewis launched their careers.
