Graceland portico details, pictures wanted

Thu Sep 26, 2013 3:12 pm

Hi all.

I have really tried to look all over the internet for pictures showing the Graceland portico in detail but with little luck.
There are tons of pics showing the Graceland front door, the columns and basically everything but the top of the portico.
I would like to see all the details at the top of those 4 columns (the roof section) so if anyone could help me out I would greatly appreciate the help!
I went to Graceland in 2002, but did not then think of this... and from where I live it's 5000 miles to Graceland (not 3000... :) ) so it's a long trip to go back for this.
The level of detail I'm looking for is such that I would be able to see the profile of the dentil mouldings etc. If someone can share blueprints of these features that would be even better.
Thanks!

Jake

The level of detail I'm looking for is such that the picture pretty much needs to be taken with focus on the top section of the portico,
and that's really not the classic shot people take when they get to Graceland! Goes for me, too.
Thanks anyway, ArtyMorty.

The blueprint I already got does the trick, the rest I can figure out from photos.

Is this what you're looking for?
