I was wondering if there were any pictures of Elvis in Sun Studio? Ive seen a few from the Million Dollar Quartet but was looking for pics from earlier than that.

Thanks,

Thanks for the quick reply! I thought the first one was taken at RCA?

There are some great shots of Elvis visiting the studio in '56.

I remember also a great topic about the famous million dollar pic.
Somebody help?

If I'm not mistaken, the pics of Elvis on RCA contract signing day where he is with his parents, Sam Philips and RCA officials, were taken at Sun studios.

Some were taken at Sun, others were made later that day at the Peabody.

Elvis Presley officially signed with RCA on Monday, November 21, 1955.

My guess is they gave him the tie that day he signed as a gift, sort of a "welcome to the club" thing.
The one in the pictures I posted was sold from the site in the link a few years ago by a NY area company that specialize in vintae type clothing apparantly http://www.etsy.com/people/ConservationClothing Not sure where they got it or how much it went for but there's probably more than few kicking around.

a couple of different companies made them at different times, materials and colors too. I'm not certain what color Elvis' was.
