... Being a bit of a Wertheimer photo expert [ yeah, yeah Rijff :roll: ]

I can tell you its not one of alfies collection. It appeared first in Look

magazine, [ USA] in the spring of 56, I believe... Together with shots

of him on his Harley, zipping a soda with mom and dad, one with his

grandaddy [ rare!] a. o

Cant remember the photographers name... Zimmersomething...

Great shots, of a great kool dude, who always looked his part,

in those great early years...

That guy's name was Gereon Zimmerman and he was in Memphis during the last few days of May 1956 to do his story for LOOK magazine.

I'll try and see if I can get my scanner to work and post a photo of Elvis and Mr Zimmerman later.
