Beale Street, Memphis, Tennessee, looking east from Fourth Street during the Urban Renewal Project on February 18, 1971. Both the Tri-State Bank and the First Baptist Church survived the renewal project, although Tri-State Bank has since moved and the building sits vacant. The building was once the site of Solvent Savings and Trust Bank founded by famed African American Memphian Robert Reed Church.
