On Sept. 12, 1957, a black Cadillac pulled up to the Little Shamrock, a small café that was located on the south end of Cleveland where Highway 105 meets Washington Avenue.
In the car were band members and a singer who had done a show in Houston and were headed north, probably on their way back to Memphis. The singer was Elvis Presley.
They had stopped at the Little Shamrock for breakfast and to fill the car up with gas before continuing their journey.
Aline Landrum was the waitress who served Elvis that morning. A woman named Dorothy Briscoe took two photos of Elvis; one outside and one inside the café.
Mrs. Landrum, who still lives in Cleveland, recalls that Elvis ordered a big breakfast consisting of two eggs, an order of bacon, double order of toast, coffee, pancakes, a piece of chocolate pie and a Pepsi Cola.
