Original April 1958 snapshot photos of Elvis Presley with a female fan outside the gates of Graceland. Back of photo has an Elvis Presley Rock n Roll Kats Fan Club (O'Fallon, MO) stamp on it and a sentiment, "To Wanda, Loving you, Joyce & El, March 18, 1958". That is probably the fan club President (Joyce Gentry) in the photo with Elvis.

Elvis posed with one of his cars outside Graceland in this photograph published March 7, 1965, in the first issue of Mid-South, the now-defunct Sunday magazine of The Commercial Appeal. Elvis complained of the long sessions with photographers making movie publicity stills: 'I try to cut the time down to three or four hours, but sometimes you have to pose for six or eight. A man only has so many different smiles, and I don't have many.'
Elvis fiddles with an electric bass and plays the piano inside Graceland in this photograph published March 7, 1965, in the first issue of Mid-South, the now-defunct Sunday magazine of The Commercial Appeal. Elvis had misgivings about allowing pictures to be made inside his home. 'It's not that I don't want pictures,' he said. 'You know what I mean. Some people might think I am looking for publicity or trying to exploit my home. I certainly don't want anyone to think that.'
