Elvis´ family photo

Thu Jul 21, 2005 2:23 pm

OK! Now we know the year of this. I have read a couple of times that the famous pictures of Elvis, Priscilla and Lisa Marie is from februari 1971. Look at this picture taken with Elvis and Nixon together (december 1970). Elvis shows Nixon one of the family photos. Anyone who knows the exact date when the pictures (of the family) was taken? ... 364-05.jpg

This was discussed some time ago on a thread concerning Elvis' final 'studio' photograph. As you say it has long been mentioned that they were taken to coincide with Lisa Marie's 3rd birthday in Feb 1971 but can't have been as he had them in December. Doc mentioned early to mid-December 1970 which is as accurate as I've read. His hair's a similar length to the Nixon shot's so it must have been some time in December. Possibly Priscilla only knows for sure.

And the photographer and all those Elvis body guards, and studio employees etc. ... 64945.html

Nice try at a constructive reply Maurice :D

I said "possibly Priscilla only knows for sure" as she most likely instigated the photo session and would certainly remember the date. There would be no studio employees as it was taken at one of Elvis' homes, few, if any, bodyguards would have been there and even if they were it's unlikely they would know the date 'for sure'. The phpotographer? Give me his name and I'll ask him.

Here's a website that may help you with your reading. :D :wink:

Delboy, I quoted your "Possibly Priscilla only knows for sure". Perhaps YOUR reading is a little negative?

A little off colour are we?..the Robin in need of a service:-)

On the 10th of December, at their Hillcrest home (Los Angeles), the day before Dick Grob's wedding in Palm Beach!

Yes Abdoman the curtains look similar to the ones from the photos that same year showing Elvis the sniper kneeling by his rifle case.

I presume that the oft attributed date of 1971 is down to the press first receiving these images for publication in that year....?
