Awesome pictures! I've enjoyed the thread very much, thanks Peter :)

I have one thing to ask: where is the b/w photo of Sam Elvis and Marion in front of the the Memphis Recording Service Records from? What a great photo, and sharp too! I have never seen it anywhere before... :shock:

Thanks Elton and Terry for the then and now photos from Johnnie's Drive-Inn in Tupelo.

I'm just not so sure the photo of Elvis is really from that Drive-Inn. The booths seem to be made of an entirely different kind of material in the photo with Elvis.

Elvis wore this shirt during the early summer of 1956 and I don't recall Elvis visiting Tupelo during this time although he COULD have.

Do we have any photos from inside Johnnie's Drive-Inn from 1956 or do we even know that it existed back then??

Sincerely

I don't know whether the pics were taken from Johnnie's or not, but it definitely existed back then.

I found this on a website of reviews of the drive-in:

We were told by one of the waitresses that Elvis' old girlfriend Magdalene Morgan still comes in to eat there. They have a picture of the 2 of them above the booth where Elvis use to sit. Food was really good ! Have a great day....Karin

I know...this posting is from a loooong tim e ago, but I want to respond to it anyway. 8)

Elvis never had any intensions to be buried...period...
He wanted to stay above the ground, that's why he was placed in the mausuleum after he died. Only after some sick people tried to rob the body (or had plans to do so) Vernon asked permission to re-bury Elvis' and Gladys' body at private propriety. One of the conditions was (and still is) that the graves have to be accessible for people to visit for free a few houres a day. Since that's the case with all cemetories. And that is still the case; every morning before the museum opens, people can walk up to the graves for free and pay their respect. Three years ago I was lucky enough to stand at the graves al by myself...for about 15 minutes. No one else was there. I stood there in the pooring rain and it was very windy (Katrina was on her way to New Orleans) . The eternal flame stopped burning...a guy that worked there came over to kindle the eternal flame again and together we ordened the flowers etc. that had fallen due to the rain and wind. That made me feel good...as if I could do something back for Elvis.

Thanks Claude, if we compare the one of Elvis drinking a glass of water to the one of him sitting in the diner I'd say they're from the same date.

Same clothes and same hair. What do you guys think??
