"I absolutely LOVE this photo my co worker sent me on his trip to Memphis today! Does anyone feel the spirit of Elvis through this picture like I can!?" ~ Enrique Landeros (Thnx to Enrique Landeros who shared this lovely photo with the facebook group "The Elvis Appreciation Society“ on June 22, 2016.)
Elvis Presley New Music Gates at Graceland in 1957 - April 22, 1957
When Elvis Presley purchased Graceland in 1957, the music gates were not a part of the property. Designed for Elvis by Abe Saucer and custum-built by John Dillars, Jr., of Memphis Doors, Inc., the custom music gates were delivered and installed on April 22, 1957.
Elvis Presley | Graceland Wall ~ Graceland sits on 13 ½ acres. The wall surrounding the estate is made from Alabama fieldstone. It’s sometimes referred to the “Graffiti Wall” because visitors write sentiments to Elvis. A crew cleans the wall regularly with a pressurized water system, allowing for new round of messages.
