Sandi: Reading Glasses?

Post by Cryogenic »

Hi Sandi! I'll keep this one short and sweet ... Did you ever see Elvis in his reading glasses? And do any photos exist?

I never took any photos of him wearing his prescription glasses (other than some of his sunglasses which were rx glasses) He really didn't use his reading glasses that often so I'm guessing his eyes weren't all that bad when it came to reading. Just a guess...

I remember two pairs - one was dark brown frames and they were a rectangle shape - not very large. The other pair was rimless - rather non' descript. He'd sit and watch tv and chew on those (the side piece) EEww! LOL!

I've seen pics of him wearing them, circa stay away joe era. I can't remember where though...

Here we go. It's a screen cap, I believe
