Commercial Appeal Article on Graceland...1940.

Wed Aug 07, 2013 2:00 am

Here is a complete Memphis commercial appeal newspaper that I bought that features Graceland a year after it was built. Elvis was only 5 at the time this story was published.

I will try to do that. It's a very interesting read. It talks about the "music room" being the perfect listening room.

If they only knew that 17 years later...the worlds most famous singer ever, would own it.
