The lost photo session of 1956 (From Elvis World, by Jane & Michael Stern, 1992)
Except for an early radio jingle on behalf of Southern Maid Doughnuts, Elvis never endorsed a product. But in 1956, the Hungerford Company, makers of walnut and mahogany furniture, asked him to pose with their latest cabinetry. Bill Carrier, Jr., and Bill Kingdon of API Photographers in Memphis shot these pictures for a proposed advertising campaign. However, when Hungerford’s sales managers saw the rock provocateur squatting in front of their product and a paint-by-numbers oil, they nixed the idea. Teenage girls, they figured, were interested in saving their pennies more for Love Me Tender lipstick than for mahogany bureaus; nor would parents be eager to purchase a bedroom suite recommended by a swivel-hipped sex symbol.
The ads never ran, and the pictures were stashed in Graceland’s basement and the API archiver until 1986.
Government is good.
Big Brother is watching you.

Welcome to the new project set up by the CumberAngels where we try and send out positive messages to all those who need them. We call it CumberAngels Be Strong.
CumberAngels Be Strong is a support blog by the CumberAngels. This blog will solely be dedicated to posting your messages of hope, inspiration, love, motivation and general positivity. This is a place you can come when you are feeling down and need a pick-me-up, to be told that it will get better, and that you can’t let the bad days overshadow the good ones.
The world can be a very dangerous dark dreary place and this blog wants to act as the light in those dark times to give you something to smile about and to let you know that people do care.
How can you help?
Record a video (no more than a minute long) with a positive message like it will get better, people do care, remember that you are amazing. It can be specific to holidays, to family, to exams but the message HAS TO BE POSITIVE.
You can take a picture you yourself holding a message written down. It can be anything from “remember that I care”, “smile and be happy”, “don’t let them grind you down”. It just has to be positive.
Then submit them and we will watch/take a look at all the entries that come our way and publish those that follow the rules above.
This blog will be open for everyone to come and see the messages of support, motivation, and love. It can be a place you can come to when you are feeling down and to know that it will get better, that you can’t let the bad spoil the good. This will be an ongoing project.
Remember people do care!
