Andrea Shaw and Alan Grossman, a couple of New York-based Elvis fans who're considering a future part-time residence in the Bluff City, have created the first hand-drawn map of Memphis illustrating over 100 Presley-related sites.

On a previous visit to Graceland the couple had been unable to obtain a guide to both off-the-path Elvis sites, and other non-Elvis-related landmarks so they decided to create one.

I'll have a lot more about the history of this new map in next week's issue of the Memphis Flyer, but wanted to share a sneak peak of the artifact that's making its debut in Memphis August 12, at an A. Schwab's Elvis Week event.

The "Upstairs at Schwab's" event also includes a presentation by Elvis historian Sue Mack who's leading the effort to restore Elvis' Circle G Ranch in Horn Lake, MS.
