From the Trude Forsher Collection

The start of 1957 was a busy one for Elvis: he was in Memphis, then New York for his third and final appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show and then on January 10, he took the cross-country train from Memphis to Los Angeles with Gene Smith to begin recording for his new Paramount picture. It was likely on this journey that the offered black-and-white photo was snapped of Elvis, Tom Diskin and Gene Smith at Union Station. The photo is signed and inscribed “To Trude To our dependable girl ‘Friday’ best always for happiness Tom Diskin.” The inscription, while faded and difficult to see, is visible when the photo is tilted. The candid snapshot, capturing Elvis very early in his career as he takes care of business, was given to Trude Forsher, their secretary and certainly hardworking “Girl Friday.” The photo measures 7 by 4 3/4 inches (17.78 x 12.07 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

The photo has a large area of paper loss at the top, some of which affects Elvis' head. Good condition.
