Great pics!! Does anybody know where they were taken???
The polaroid was taken in the Bahamas in Oct 1969 and the other shots in Hawaii with the Aunt and Uncle of a friend of mine.
Happy ya'll enjoy the Elvis Presley Scrapbook website, it's just a hobby of mine.

Thanks to you all for the very kind comments regarding my website
Back in 1986 I was working for a company who took kids from school and placed them in out of school training before they hit the real world.
One day this kid (can't even remember his name) came out of the workshop, straight up to me and said " So you like Elvis Presley eh?"
Back then it wasn't as cool to be an Elvis fan as it is now but I didn't care anyway and answered yes..... he then blurted out that his parents I had met Elvis when they were on holiday so I asked him which one of the engineers had sent him out to 'wind me up' ?
"None of them, honest, my mom and dad met Elvis when they were on holiday" was his reply along with telling me that they took a picture of him which he autographed on the back............ "oh yeah, sure" I said to which he replied that he would go home at lunch time and bring it in for me to see.
Well, he did !!!!!!!
I offered to buy it from him but he couldn't sell it because it was his moms and she would kill him if she even knew he had brought it out the house !!!!
I rushed home to get my camera (still lunchtime you see) to (at least) take a picture of the picture (and autograph) which is just what I did.
After my amazment and thanks for letting me make a picture of it he picked up the polaroid, stuck it in his back pocket, sat up and down on it all afternoon and WRECKED IT !!!!!.
What you see is all that remains of the image in good quality (I have a high quality BIG scan of it though).
I never did see him again so I presume him mom killed him after all.
That was a great story, and funny one too.
Poor kid probably got a beating of a life time!
