The 1996 St. Louis Blues Heritage Festival . . .

. . . won't exactly go down in history as the occasion for the First Annual Blues-L Convention -- next to nobody showed -- but for a few hardcore 'zellers, it was an occasion they'll never forget. Please enjoy these photos courtesy of P.W. and Roz Fenton. You can click the smaller image to see the full-color jpeg. The jpegs range from 22k to 30k in size.
