Five original 35mm black-and-white negatives taken by Canadian journalist and photographer Jock Carroll in 1956 while covering Elvis's rise to fame for Weekend Magazine. Four of the five photographs were published as part of Carroll's column, "I Like Elvis Presley," in the September 8, 1956 issue of Weekend Magazine (Vol. 6, No. 36). The fifth was published in the June 2000 issue of B&W Magazine as part of a retrospective profile of Carroll's work capturing icons on the brink of fame. Most importantly, the copyright to these images conveys with the sale of the negatives: when Jock Carroll left Weekend Magazine, copyright to all his photographs was signed over to him. Later, Carroll signed over copyright to his son, Angus Carroll, who holds it now and will grant it to the purchaser. This would give the buyer the right to print and sell copies, although commercial use would require permission from the estate of Elvis Presley. The negatives—which show Elvis relaxing in a lounge chair, signing autographs (including one on a young lady's arm), singing 'Hound Dog' to a hound dog, and performing with his acoustic guitar—are contained in Weekend Magazine filing sleeves: three of those published by Weekend bear affixed prints of the contained negative, as well as typed captions. The other two negatives are held in a sleeve from an unrelated article by Carroll. Additionally includes modern glossy 8 x 10 prints of four of the images, plus the original issues of Weekend Magazine (with Elvis section intact, but missing other pages) and B&W in which they appeared. In overall fine condition. A remarkable group of early, well-composed Elvis images, capturing his character and charm as he became a household name.
