f8inmemphis Just east of Court Square in downtown Memphis is this much-photographed alley, marked by a metal arch that says "KLYX Stereo Alley." Apparently the sign is left from an effort during the 1960s to spruce up downtown's alleys, and here, speakers played live broadcasts from radio station KLYX. The speakers have been gone for years and so has KLYX; the station has changed formats and call letters several times. 19h

  •   f8inmemphis @lady_gadiva It's quite the antique place in its own right 2w
  •   beccieclickspic Amazing capture of antiquity-oddly it's not so long ago that it seems to have been up and running (per your post). So strange to me how something that was so new not so long ago can appear forgotten in just a blink of an eye. I find items like these so beautiful-as they stand proud even in their forgotten state. 2w

f8inmemphis I got a chance to look around the back-shop area at the old Memphis Bicycle Company on Summer Avenue today. There's still an incredible amount of vintage bikes and bike parts left at the closed Schwinn dealership after last weekend's liquidation sale. New owner Ted Norman said another sale will be held in a few weeks to clear out the building for renovation. 2w
