Photographer's Note

Helena, Arkansas is a small town just across the Mississippi. There's Helena and West-Helena, two towns that have been merged in 2006.

Helena has a firm blues tradition with the King Biscuit Hour, the US' longest running daily radio show, and Sonny Boy Williamson the big local hero. The owners of the great B&B we stayed in, even claimed that Elvis once sat at the bar in their restaurant.

The old downtown still needs a revamp, though. Lots of homes have been abandonned, including the restaurant in this picture. Trying to revive the old downtown is a struggle, but it's worth it. Lots of potential here.
