Can anybody tell me what year this picture is from, place and who is women with Gladys . Everybody on pinterest says Gladys is pregnant here with twins, but Its wrong . I need right info
, welcome to FECC!
The photo has been posted here before. Gladys
is not pregnant with twins, that happened when she was 22 years old.
The best guess is this image shows Elvis' mom at 462 Alabama Avenue in Memphis circa 1952, with her upstairs neighbor Jeannette Fruchter
, or possibly a visiting friend or co-worker.
Jeannette's husband, Alfred
, was a rabbi of an orthodox synagogue in town, and teen-age Elvis actually served as the family's personal shabbes goy during Sabbath.

Another photo from the same date and time identifies this
lady as Jeannette:
My feeling is the first photo is the friend or co-worker, the second Mrs. Fruchter. She passed away about 14 years ago:http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/timesunion-albany/obituary.aspx?n=jeannette-fruchter&pid=1356229
