Visiting Graceland.

Leave a comment

Graceland is one of the most popular places in the United States. Former house of Elvis Presley and his family is a museum nowadays. It was opened in 1982. Even though the house is widely criticized (mainly its design) in fact more than 650 000 people visit Graceland annually. Thus Albert Goldman compares it with a brothel. Tamsin Blanchard shares his impressions describing the mansion. “In a fit of gaudiness we could only expect from the King, the house was fitted out like a bordello. This was the early 70s, after all, and if Elvis couldn’t paint his house red, then who could? […] So the walls, carpets, curtains and furnishings were all hot Corvette red”.
