Elvis Photo Negative, What can you tell me about it?

Sun Jun 05, 2011 1:24 pm

Hi I wondered if you may be able to help me out with a photo negative I have.

It was among some possesions belonging to my mum who was a big elvis fan and as far as I can recall she mentioned she recieved it from her mum some time ago and wondered if you could give me any information on it as well as maybe it's value?

I appreciate your time looking at my thread, I have attached a photo to, I apologize if the quality isn't the best as I only have a camera on my cell phone.

Thank you very much

From what i see here, it appears to be a shot of Elvis from June 9, 1972 when he was giving a press conference at the New York Hilton. Geraldo Rivera arranged the press conference to promote Elvis' Madison square Garden shows.
This may have been a negative given to your mother by an actual photographer who was there taking photos (which is somewhat doubtful) or she may have bought it from a fan club that was selling duplicate negatives of Elvis photos (and hawking them as the real deal).
I don't know.
But, it's definitely the June 9, 1972 press conference in which Elvis wore a blue jacket with high collar and a zebra print shirt (in other words, black and white spotted shirt) and he opened the press conference with the words "first of all i plead innocent to all charges!"
