Pop Tunes, Summer Avenue - Part 2

Recently The Shelf has enjoyed a nice bit of traffic from readers in Memphis. This, of course, is attributable to The Memphis Flyer featuring my post on the Pop Tunes Record Shop on Summer Avenue. Now it appears as though the end is near for the original location on Poplar Avenue. Very sad.

It did give me a chance to take pause and eek out one last look at that closed Summer Avenue location. I’ve posted it below (courtesy of Bing Maps). Apparently Bing Maps (with its amazing “Bird’s Eye” view) was drawing upon an old satellite photo file. Here you can see the old store and more importantly, that Iconic sign:

BTW - I can't recommend The Memphis Flyer enough - here's a great article about suburban sprawl in the city.
