OLD PHOTO FROM TUPELO

Sun Jun 23, 2013 5:37 pm

This was found on Ebay & is from James Curtin's collection. Looks to be a photograph from the mid 1940's or early 1950's. Can anybody identify either of the women?
They could be relatives of Elvis or neighbors. Perhaps "The Boy from Tupelo" book has this photo in it & may have more information.

This is new to my eyes...is this photo in your possession or from a book? You would assume that Gladys is on the Left.
That's very cool!

interesting photo not convinced that is Gladys and the shack looks in great condition...wonder how it compares to when Vernon was photographed on the steps by Albert Hand?

It's for sale on Ebay. Not sure if it is the original photo. It does look like Gladys on the left.

Here is photo of another Presley...named Sybil supposedly taken in 1945. Note that the lawn is more "manicured" than in the previous picture...which mostly shows just weeds.
Both pix....IMO...look like they were taken during the 1940's.

This looks to be a completely different house altogether.

It could be that Vernon & his brothers built several small houses in the same neighborhood...to help each other.

I agree. And that's NOT Gladys!
Her weight was not up in the 40's early 50's
(also note the swing is missing.)

It's the correct house. The picture with Sybil is mirrored and much older than the eBay one and the one with Vernon. The house was remodeled somewhat after the picture with Sybil, the windows and frames were replaced with newer smaller ones and the spaces framed in. They probably replaced the siding too. The current swing was added sometime after the photo from ebay and Vernon. The bottom photos show how it appeared in 2002.
My thoughts on the ebay photo is that its just a couple of fans getting their photo taken there years ago and have no relationship to Elvis at all. They're just tourists. I've got one of me there if you want to buy that. It's color and has the swing.

I'm still not convinced that the top photo is not Gladys. See the attached photo of Gladys taken sometime in the 1940s...with added weight. The Ebay photo could have been taken in the early 1950s...perhaps after a return visit to Tupelo. If I'm not mistaken...they left Tupelo for Memphis in 1949.

Well, if everyone's gonna do the porch thing, here's my dad, in 1984. I took this with an SLR, and developed it in my darkroom. Only to do a bad scan into the computer! But enjoy, if you wanna see a lotta swingin'!

I like this, because it's so peaceful! You'd almost think the swing was always there, but it wasn't.

I never saw that one. it looks like a painting. When is it said to be? If that's Elvis' house on the left its after the mods to the windows.

That painting is on the wall at the entrance to the museum in Tupelo at the birthplace .
That model is inside the birthplace museum.

Here are 2 more shots of the old house...probably taken during the 1930's or 40's.
