WOW! This is the site of one of my earliest Memphis Memories. All the true early 70's hippies used to sit on the corner outside of that building. The new grafitti is pretty connected to that time too because the Flower Children had covered that place in murals of flowers and anti-war slogans. Anyone else remember this?

Fiery, that is so cool. I was hoping someone could tell me something about this building! Any more.
It's only one off graffiti...they let em loose last night, and it all gets torn down this week.
I took a pic for you, think I wrote you about it?

I couldn't remember what this building was before it was the Robt. E. Lee Antique Mall. Anyone?

It was a furniture store when the hippies sat out front. They eventually painted over the floral mural but left one rectangular piece with the flowers on it for years.

I used to call them The Flower People, no sense of irony, I was about 3 years old!

I found some great stuff there. Random records, and figurines. I remember taking an ex-boyfriend there who freaked out when we came across slave tags and random shit that would shock your average Northerner.
