In the 1960 television special known as Welcome Home Elvis (officially titled It’s Nice to Go Traveling), hosted by Frank Sinatra and sponsored by Timex, Elvis made his first television appearance since returning from his Army service in Germany. The show was taped on March 26, 1960 in Miami and Elvis traveled by train from Nashville to reach Florida. Elvis was famously interviewed on the train during his travels to Miami. The press interviewed both Sinatra and Presley separately with great intensity, attempting to create a rivalry from which they could fashion a story. The two musicians had nothing but respect for each other and were not so easily baited. The show aired on ABC (American Broadcasting Co.) on May 12, 1960. Offered are eight (8) color negatives (in two strips) of Elvis during his journey to Miami for the show, each one a more appealing shot than the last! One strip containing five (5) negatives measures 7 1/2 by 1 3/8 inches (19.05 x 3.49 cm) and the strip containing three (3) negatives measures 4 1/4 by 1 3/8 inches (11.43 x 3.49 cm). The pair of negative strips, with incredible head shots of Elvis in a white shirt, black jacket and black cravat, is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The negatives are in overall excellent condition.
