Elvis and Priscilla rented a house in Palm Springs that the couple would use while Elvis was filming in Los Angeles until fans discovered that they could see into the windows with binoculars. It was then that Priscilla, after searching, found the home at 1174 Hillcrest Drive in the posh Trousdale Estates neighborhood of Beverly Hills. In 1967, Elvis purchased the property where the family lived during their stints in California until 1973. The large, 5,367 square foot French Regency style home was designed by architect Rex Lotery and featured astounding panoramic views of the city and ocean. Elvis would often greet fans and sign autographs at the gates. Offered are six (6) such color snapshots captured by fans in a two-year span with three (3) photos depicting Elvis wearing a dark leather jacket and dated to November 26, 1968 as noted by the inscriptions on the reverse of two photos. One of the images shows Elvis with a fan named Shannon and the roommate of the photographer (assumed to have made the inscription detailing such). The additional three (3) photos depict Elvis wearing a bright yellow shirt with large collar and are dated to July 17, 1969, at 6:30 p.m. by an inscription on the reverse of all three. These also have the names S. Miller and Sandi Miller written on the reverse. The photos, clearly portraying Elvis’ fashion style of the period, each measure 3 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches (1.37 x 1.37 cm) and are accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The photos present with only mild age-related toning and very small areas of edge wear. Near Mint condition.
