The map that helps you see Memphis as Elvis experienced it.
Andrea Shaw and Alan Grossman are fans from New York City who came to Memphis looking for Elvis and ended up falling in love with the city.
Years ago they visited Memphis to see Graceland and discovered there was no single map to guide them to other Elvis sites in the city. After 3 years of research they hired one of the country’s top map illustrators along with an award-winning art director/graphic artist to produce the first illustrated map of Memphis that is based on Elvis’s life.
Andrea and Alan enjoyed the research for this project, first of all because it involved so many visits to Memphis! The research included consulting with Elvis historians and Memphis experts, who helped them locate the buildings that still exist from Elvis’s time, as well as the buildings that are long gone. Not only can you see where Elvis made his first public appearance or saw his car almost destroyed by adoring fans – buildings that are still there – but you can also see the location and often an illustration of the “lost” landmarks of his life such as where Elvis worked as a truck driver and met Colonel Tom Parker for the first time.
This map helps to plan a visit to Memphis, serves as a guide for a self-conducted tour of downtown and is the perfect souvenir to remember your visit. Even if you’re not able to visit Memphis, the map help’s you visualize how Elvis lived in the city he called home.
The map includes a map of Greater Memphis, a Downtown Map, a Graceland Map and a Legend that describes how each site was a part of Elvis’s life.
It also includes the major attractions of Memphis, because exploring the city doesn’t end after a visit to Graceland. After all, if you want to know Elvis, you need to visit Memphis.
