To mark the 40th anniversary of Elvis Presley’s death, rare images of the King of Rock and Roll are being exhibited at the Ophir Tavern.

“It’s incredible, we’re not likely to see it again,” one of Elvis’ fans, Wendy Spooner said.

“If you love rock and roll, Elvis is the greatest.”

Miss Spooner said Elvis was a conduit for changing how music like blues was perceived.

She said it was great to see the photographic collection in Orange.

“A lot more happens in regional areas than people thing, you just have to keep your eyes and ears open and read your local paper.”

Curator Adam Nicholson said the exhibition would be open from midday to 3pm and 5pm to 8pm until August 20 for a gold coin donation to raise money for Harrison Bannon so he could get an autism assistance dog.
