Howlin' Wolf

Today Howlin' Wolf, were he still among us, would be celebrating his 113th birthday (h/t John Funke).  Via the pages of the March 1972 issue of Ebony magazine, here's a glimpse of his home turf club in Chicago's "West Side ghetto."  The Blue Flame Lounge (aka Duke's Show Place) even incorporated Howlin' Wolf into their incredible sign.  It's a little tough to read but right next to the wolf, it says "HOME OF THE HOWLING WOLF."  I like it.
