... up there, Memphis Minnie became a legend, B. B. King became "the Beale Street Blues Boy." Why this was all so important to a boy growing up in the suburbs of Adelaide was a question I never answered until many years later.

Anyway, the entire little downtown area of Hannibal was nice as well. Many original buildings still stand. Java Jive claimed to be the oldest coffee house west of the Mississippi which is a great claim-to-fame. Their coffee was tasty as well. Like much of Missouri that ...
