Originally built in 1901, the Lofts at Union Alley is located on Barboro Alley, with Union to the north and Gayoso to the south, is perhaps the most picturesque. A straight shot to the Mississippi River with buildings bordering the thin path of cobblestones, resembling a street from ancient Rome, Barboro Alley, is named for a 19th-century Italian immigrant who rose to prominence as a fruit and produce distributor whose store was located at 345 S. Main. Called Dead Man’s Alley up until the 1880s because two undertakers, J. Hinton, and Sons and T.J. Collins, who operated on opposite ends of the alley, the alley saw a gruesome chapter in Memphis history during the yellow fever epidemic of 1878. In 1994 the building became the home of Blue Light Studio, the studio that took a famous portrait of Elvis Presley while located on Beale St. just prior to his first television appearance. It was renovated in 2011 as The Lofts at Union Alley.
