Description: 

Built on the site of the earlier Calhoun Street Station, Central Station in Memphis had 10 tracks when it opened in 1914. It would still have been a busy place when Fonzo and Virgil arrive there in Chapter 21, and even late at night Horace can buy a cup of coffee there while waiting for a train, though he "wished immediately that he had not," as it "lay like a hot ball" in his stomach throughout the three hours it took to get back to his house in Jefferson (221).
