Elvis Presley Traffic Lights

Today is the 46th anniversary of Elvis Presley’s death on 16th August, 1977.

During his time in the U.S. Army, he was stationed at Ray Barracks in Friedberg (Germany) between October 1958 and March 1960.

To show their connection to the singer, the town has a square called “Elvis-Presley-Platz” which even has traffic lights showing his silhouettes.
