The Curiously Middle-Eastern Architecture of Memphis…

I came across this great shot by Gary Bridgman on Memphisto’s Bluff–a Flickr group I belong to. Memphisto’s Bluff is meant to show “non-tourist” pictures of “M-Town.”

Capturing the St. Jude’s golden dome and The Pyramid in one shot is brilliant!

Gary writes:

“The Levant at the top of the Delta? St. Jude Children’s Hospital/ALSAC’s golden dome and The Pyramid, both along I-40 in downtown Memphis, Tennessee. Pale comparisons to the originals? Hell, just try and get a decent pork BBQ plate in Jerusalem or Cairo. BBQ goat, sure, but you’ll still be hard-pressed to find a 6-pack of Busch skull-busters (16-oz cans) to go with it. I’m pretty sure the guy driving the truck was Mossad. NowhatI’msayin? Jackie’s Ice Cream in Jerusalem….now that’s a different story altogether…”
