Offered is the personal photo album of Elvis Presley's cook Nancy Rooks, filled with images of the inside of Graceland. The images are all from the 1970s and include photos of Linda Thompson in several rooms, pictures of young Lisa Marie, some magazine photos, but most interestingly are the shots of the various rooms inside the mansion. Many of them are 8 x 10 inch prints from a set of photos taken by Elvis' bodyguard Dick Grob. It's a wonderful look inside Graceland.

Offered is Elvis Presley's "praying hands" wall sculpture from his home Graceland. It comes from the Nancy Rooks collection. Accompanying the hands is a Polaroid taken by Nancy of the hands in her home--this was one of her methods for documenting the items that she received from Elvis and his family. 

Nancy worked as a maid and cook for Elvis Presley at Graceland from 1967 to 1977, and stayed on to work for the family until 1982. She treasured her time working for Elvis and the Presley family, and always enjoyed sharing her memories with fans over the years. She made countless meals for Elvis, including his peanut butter and banana sandwiches. As a member of the Graceland family, Nancy was given any number of household items, decorative pieces or keepsakes that Elvis, Vernon, Elvis' grandmother Minnie Mae or Elvis' Aunt Delta wanted her to have. Sadly, Nancy passed just this past August 15, during The annual "Elvis Week" celebrations in Memphis. The items offered in this auction emanate directly from Nancy's estate and are accompanied by a letter of authenticity from her family.

The photos are almost all adhered to the pages of the album, but could be removed by a restorer. Very Good to Excellent condition.
