Post here your Elvis' pictures

Any information, please!?

Sun Nov 04, 2012 2:10 pm

The photos below all look to me as if they must be from the early '50s, before 1954, but Elvis had a very disconcerting way of looking 16 at 25 and 25 at 16, so I'm not at all confident -- and I haven't a clue where any of them might have been taken. Experts to the fore, please!!

The one with the flute, or whatever it is, is a fake. It's Elvis face from a 1956 photo superimposed.

The last one with the cowboy hat is, I think, Elvis rehearsing for the western skit on The Steve Allen Show.

Thanks, DarrlyMac. I wondered about that flute! I have deleted my copy. You are correct, of course, about (A); it matches perfectly the others taken during that rehearsal, but I'd never have found it on my own.
:D

The first one --> Outside of 462 Alabama Avenue with with unknown woman and young man, circa 1952.

The third one --> Looks like august 1956, probably Florida. :?

Thanks, JavierTCB.

Gosh, I've been looking at those photos for months. Should have come to FECC a lot sooner. :oops:

Can anyone tell me how to fix the links so everyone can see the photos?

(Bit of a computer ignoramus, here.)

Thanks!

Hey latebloomer, for me no problem. I can see these ones.

I can't see them either. I can only guess that it might be because they are .tiff files. It might be a browser issue. If you were able to convert them to .jpg and reload them, or if someone that can see them could save them and do the conversion and upload them then we might be able to see them.

OK, nevemind, I was able to pull them out of the source. Are these the ones?

It's still not the Fruchters, although many claim it is. I noted this in another topic where you made the same comment; you said you'd update your database!

Here's what we know:

... While we did live at 462 Alabama, and my parents had a close relationship with Elvis and his parents, the woman in the picture is definitely not my mother. The other guy is certainly not my brother David since he was about 3 years old when that picture was taken. Anyway, it was great seeing these photos. [Harold Fruchter] [Elvis Australia]

Is the other boy in the pics Buzzy Forbes? (Don't really think so: the hair is parted on the opposite side, and the features appears somewhat different. But it is different when people smile, and when they don't.) It was a stab at it!

The REAL Mrs. Fruchter, and you can hear her!

And I stumbled upon this in tumblr. It's says it's her, Mrs. Fruchter, in Shreveport, in a photobooth, 1954. Is it?

No, it's a teenager who dated Elvis in 1954.

JamesVRoy, thanks very much for putting the photos into usable format. I had just about decided that the .tiff format might be the problem. My apologies to all; won't happen again.

DrJohn, your attributes look good to me, thanks for the information.

Have a nice weekend, everyone!

Here's where I remember we discussed "D" before but I don't think I've ever seen it uncropped

JamesvRoy, I've never seen D uncropped, either, but I sure would like to! (Hint, hint...anyone?)

This is one of those photos that I find so confusing. I wondered if that black leather jacket would place it with the others taken to show off his new motorcycle, but he looks s-o-o-o young, only about 16! I had tentatively filed it with the other '50-'54 photos.

Elvis was a darned chamelion!

Maybe. It's hard to tell for sure. Here's the house:
