Blues part Deux
This image 1967 downtown Edwardsville where I grew up.
My Mom painted this and what memories it can recall.
Wish I had been old enough to go to the Blue Note Lounge.
Bet you can pick that out.
Of course true natives would recognize
the Pool hall, Gerhardt's,
Jail Tree and One hour Martinizing.
This downtown is 20 or so miles from St. Louis, home of The Blues.
St. Louis was farther away then if you know what I mean.
It was about 2 blocks from our house.
A little less when you cut cross lots.
