March 20, 2012



Take Elvis with you on a historical journey of Memphis! Rare photos of Elvis at Graceland and around Memphis can now be seen at Whatwasthere.com.

Twelve images have been added to the site designed to create a photographic timeline of history. Travel back to 1957 when Elvis first purchased Graceland and was often seen signing autographs for adoring fans at the gates of his home. Follow Elvis down the streets of Memphis to the places he often performed and store he frequented. Sit down with Elvis at Jim's Barber Shop where he received his haircuts and see photos of Elvis posing with his Memphis fans.

The WhatWasThere project combines technology to provide a new human experience of time and space – a virtual time machine that allows users to navigate familiar streets as they appeared in the past. The site allows users to upload images and contribute to history.
