Louis Jordan Bust Closeup

While traveling through the Mississippi Delta came to Brinkley, AR. Which is half way between Little Rock and Memphis. Wanted to take in some local history when I saw the sign for Lick Skillet Railroad Work Station Historic District. Had no knowledge that it was the birthplace of Louis Jordan. The museum was small but well maintained, thought the tribute to Louis Jordan was unexpected in a delta town, understanding that during his lifetime he would most likely not been able to perform in most venues. Combining Louis Jordan with the history of the towns railroading past was also a pleasant discovery.
