Elvis at the Sahara, October 1957!

Sat Apr 20, 2013 1:00 am

This is a photo I've not seen before, my guess is it's from the Sahara Hotel in October 1957:

I suspect the image is cropped, I wonder who Elvis is greeting. Anyone know more?

Here's a cool page on the legendary hotel:

NOTE: thanks to bripet56, the full photo is of Elvis being greeted by Sahara Hotel executive Herb McDonald.

It's from one of them, I believe.

Which seems slightly odd, as Trevor Cajiao asked Jim Reid in an interview for the magazine ETMAHM,
Trevor Cajiao: And the photos you took of him were taken in Memphis?
Jim Reid: Yes, I never photographed him anywhere but Memphis.
