Elvis Presley is pictured here, young and fresh-faced at the start of his music career, in this rare 1954 promo shot at Sun Studios in Memphis, TN. Sun Studios, known as the birthplace of rock and roll, and producer Sam Phillips, gave Elvis his start, as well as Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash and other artists.
This rare image of Elvis is displayed on the Sun Studios tour and was used for the Elvis Week Brochure in 2004. This limited edition photograph is framed to show its deckled edges, watermarked, and hand-lettered "Elvis Presley 1935-1977." It is numbered 71/275.
