Not the best copy I've seen of this photo. This one is better:

It's from Saturday, December 21, 1957. Elvis gives a red BMW Isetta sports car to his manager for Christmas, at Parker's office in Madison,Tennessee.

Nice. Mine was scanned directly from an old magazine. What's on fire in the background (?!) and I wonder if there are any alternates from the same time / day?
