Stovall Plantation, Clarksdale MS. I took these photos while traveling through the Delta in January, 2016. Stovall is where Muddy Waters grew up and first recorded with Alan Lomax, along with Son Simms, Louis Ford and Percy Thomas (the Son Simms Four) in 1941. His original cabin, which sat near the tree in the lower right photo, is now in the Delta Blues Museum in Clarksdale.
