Elvis's Birthplace, Tupelo MS

One more photo from Tupelo, MS, before we hit the road again. This little shotgun shack just happens to be the birthplace of Elvis Presley, which is now part of a city park, with the street in front of it also named in his honor. Elvis was a bit before my time; I vaguely recall seeing him on TV in his white rhinestone jumpsuit days, but that's about it. I was in Tupelo anyway to visit a Civil War site and figured I might as well take a peek at The King's humble origins. So I did, and took a photo, and here it is. You're welcome.
