By 1850, Memphis became the largest cotton market in the world with a slavery based industry. Memphis’ location along the Mississippi River was a guarantee for its early success, but it also contributed to its first failure issued into yellow fever epidemic of 1873 that developed because of bad sanitary conditions.
The escape from this came with the rule of E.H. Crump whose legacy is felt for many even today. On his initiative, came to life legendary Beale Street – a real smorgasbord of wicked diversions. But it is noted today not for its ill repute, but as the first place in the world to hear blues played in the bars lining this street.
