Amazing Find --> More Photos from the LAST '50s Show!

Wed Nov 14, 2012 10:55 pm

There are always amazing stories in terms of found Elvis items, here is another, from eBay:

Hello. Up for auction is a set of original one of a kind snapshots of Elvis performing in the very early days of his career. I found these in a little antique shop in North Georgia tucked away in an old bible. I almost fainted when they slipped out from the pages. The lady who owned the place said she had just purchased the bible from a local girl so I have no idea who took these or where they were taken. They measure 3 1/2" x 3 3/4" and on the back they read "this paper manufactured by Kodak." There are 10 total photos, 8 of which show Elvis.

They fell out of a used Bible, for sale at a little antique shop in Georgia!

Wow.

And here they are, unreleased candids of Elvis Presley on stage doing his LAST show of the 1950s:

It was the end of an era. In one year his mom would be dead, and his career on hold due to being drafted.

Thanks also to onelove, who posted the eBay link on another topic.

Note that the last two shots are not of the Presley show, but the crowd and one of the opening acts.

The close-up lounge seating, stage right, seen in the last image must have been reserved for members of the local fan club. ALL of the Presley candids were taken from one of these seats.

The opening act seen in the last photo is part of the Sterling Mossman show, from Queen's Surf Waikiki nightclub.

Has there ever been even a recording found of a 1957 concert? I'd like to hear how and what he performed during those early sets.

A photo was uploaded with no information at all.

The all-important link was posted by onelove, and they are thanked in my original post.

Everything else is me. ;-)

Wow great pix indeed!

Sometimes people wonder if there will be more great finds on new music or things like these pix on Elvis or if the wells are drying. I think there will always be, it may be in a salt mine, a forgotten vault or an old bible. Great!

I tweaked one pic a bit in Photoshop.
