summer of 1957

taken in the summer of 1957,  Elvis with a boy called Jackson Frank who became a noted figure in the British Folk music world of the 60s. The story says he was badly burnt in a severe fire at his elementary school, and thereafter Elvis sent him encouraging messages for his recovery. He and his mother stopped by at Elvis's new house Graceland, so it says, and having explained who he was , Jackson was invited in to meet Elvis. Elvis was a major influence on Frank at the time and when his mother took him to Graceland to help him recuperate was one of the highlights in Frank's tragical carreer.
