I couldn't find a running thread, that covers this era. So I took the liberty to start a new topic and maybe restore the balance a little bit. Feel free to add photos. I just grabbed all these from eBay and if available include the date / location as mentioned by the seller. I don't know if the images are rare, but enjoy.

... A 1954 party?!

Its from Gemany, 59/60. Nice shots, but being a little spoiled, I would

lie, when I said ; new to my eyes. Still, nice, sharing them with us!

Thanks.

Re: There are diffrent curtains on the photo in question.
Is that the same outfit he wore in Munich, when he visited Vera?
Or it is another room in the house, but a diffrent day.
Who are all the people at the party anyway?


I think I have fallen in love with this era all over again.
There is just something about the style and a magic to the b/w photos.

Has the photo with the Jordanaires been taken the same day he met Johnny Cash?

But of course Steve. I even have furniture that goes with the fern pattern. I obtained the original party curtains from a seller in Turkey. All he asked for in return was one EPE duck, he wanted to use as a blueprint for counterfeits. And he assured me that the product would be of better quality and design for a change :D

What I meant to say it this. That first photo could not have been taken in the same room as the last picture. But is that the piano, where the homerecordings were captured?

Yes melanie, the photo with the Jordanaires, as well as a lot of other, were all shot on the same day as the one with Johnny Cash.
Ryman Auditorium a.k.a. Grand Ol' Opry in Nashville, December 21, 1957
