Post here your Elvis' pictures

Chattanooga '56

Thu Jun 29, 2006 12:47 am

This picture was previously posted as being at the train station in Chattanooga in 56....anyone have any additional photos from this day/location? I'm assuming this is at the Chattanooga Choo Choo? I am from Chattanooga originally and would love to see more. ... ion7oz.jpg

If I'm not too mistaken I think you're right David. Being at work right now I can't check my photos to be 100% certain.

There were some more pix from Chattanooga in Wertheimer's book. The train stopped in Chattanooga in the morning of July 4th, 1956 and Elvis and the other passengers stepped off to have a bit of breakfast.

I'll see if I can maybe scan some more when I get back from work in the afternoon and post them here.

Having visited the old "Choo Choo" station there many times, it certainly does look like the old interior on the ceiling.

Well, Wertheimer's book didn't have more than one more photo from the Chattanooga station. I couldn't scan it as it would break the back of the book but I had the photo on my pc so here it is.

Great vintage photos.

Wertheimer's "Elvis '56: In the Beginning" a great book!
Out of print, if you don't have it try to track down a used copy.
It's an amazing eyewitness report, diary, narrative
and it feels as if you are there day after day as the
events are unfolding.

David- If you'd like the photo(s) to appear in the thread(s)
you must put the link in tags. [img]link[/img]

Thanks all. Out of the 150 something Elvis books I have, that's not one of them. Will have to see if I can track it down. Did find out I'm getting a copy of Elvis and Kathy which I don't have. Got lucky on that one. Thanks for the tip about the pics in the threads too.
