Russell Johnson was born and raised in Memphis. He is the son of sharecroppers and the grandson of a Memphis streetcar conductor. A sustaining member of the West Tennessee Historical Society, Johnson is the owner and primary author of the website MemphisHistory.com, a resource aimed at promoting regional and cultural pride. Using archive pictures from the 1870s though to the 1960s paired with the equivalent view today, Memphis Then and Now charts the history of the city and the profound effect of the music business; from W.

Includes: Memphis Levee, Cossitt Library, US Post Office, Beale Street, Handy Park, Warner Theatre, Columbian Mutual, Orpheum Theatre, Hebe Fountain, Union Avenue, Magevney House, Handwerker Gingerbread Playhouse, Shelby County Courthouse, St. Peter’s Catholic Church, Memphis Cotton Exchange, First National Bank, Illinois Central Station, City Hall, Masonic Temple, Peabody Hotel and the Tennessee Brewing Company.
