12 Rare Moments of Historical Figures Captured on Camera

Elvis Presley

This heartbreaking image is not the picture of a king, but the picture of a son and a father sitting on the steps of Graceland consoling each other after the passing of loving mother and wife, Gladys Love Presley.

Gladys had been feeling ill all throughout that summer of 1958, so Elvis had both his parents stay at Graceland so his mother could be attended to by his own personal physician Dr. Charles Clarke, while Elvis returned to his Basic Training unit.

Unfortunately her condition would quickly worsen, and after much wrangling with military authorities and the threat of Elvis going AWOL, he would return to be by her side. However, on August 14th 1958 at approximately 3.15am and with her husband by her side, Gladys would sadly pass away.
