"Saturday night was the fabulous
night on Beale street. Our
parents kept the store opened
late. We were children; we used
to sit on little chairs outside the
store and watch. If we got sleepy,
they would put us to sleep on a
rack of pants until they took us
home at one or two in the
morning."
Irving Straugh

"We used to have shoes
sitting out front. A man
came along and stole
one shoe. So Uncle Sam
says, 'I'm going to catch
him. He put the other
shoe out there, and the
man stole the other shoe.
That's why in our show
window there is only one
shoe to this day."
Abe Schwab



"Anything that was
pawnable, they'd pawn
- their false teeth, their
toasters. They'd have
breakfast and would go
to the pawnshop with the
toaster still warm. One
fellow came out of a taxi-cab with an artificial leg
and wanted to pawn the
leg. I wouldn't take it."
