They must have the prints of all these newspaper shots archived somewhere. Has anyone thoght to look for them, Ger Rjiff maybe?

Many of those old photos are no longer in the newspapers archives. Either they were lost in some way or the other or the photographer took them along when he/she left the newspaper.

I contacted a lot of newspapers back when I did research for my book and most of them had nothing at all.

Sometimes, the local libary, if the city is large enough
is a good place to search for news-clipping, when i was in Nasville, I found lots of old news pertaining to Elvis,
even going back to da fiftys, some of the pictures had been taken as in stolen,
They even had some vintage Look Mags.and others that turned out to be worth searching for!

Just thought I'd mention it.

Back in 1991 I spent the larger part of 4 weeks in libraries in the US doing research for my book. It was many well spent hours and I met some real wonderful and helpful people.
