Description: 

Founded in 1819, Memphis, Tennessee, had over 162,000 residents in 1920, making it the closest big city to Yoknapatawpha. Made prosperous as a riverboat town, from which much of the South shipped its cotton and timber, it was also a place where people from Jefferson went to misbehave, or at least to buy liquor legally.
