Elvis the man in my Backyard - book by long time fan

Post by MikeFromHolland »

.

Ever heard of this book before?
Shirley Connell 01.jpg
RARE ELVIS BOOK PUT OUT BY SHIRLEY CONNELL WITH RARE CANDID PHOTOS AND STORIES. I BOUGHT TWO OF THESE IN MEMPHIS AND SHIRLEY SIGNED THEM TO ME AND MY WIFE. ONE OF THE BEST CANDID BOOKS I HAVE EVER READ AND MANY UNPUBLISHED PHOTOS (..)
RICK AND JACKIE

This is Shirley with Elvis as well, a few years later:

I met Shirley in January 2014 in Memphis. Very nice lady and I bought her book. She even signed it for me. Nice read.

Shirley's stories are similar to those of Donna Lewis. Neighborhood kid, crazy about Elvis.

For those who know the book. Are there indeed "many" unseen pictures in it?
