Sandra Marie Pedraza, a Tampa woman who became the Latin American Fiesta Queen of 1956, is featured in the photo with Presley who was in Tampa that year for a concert at Fort Homer Hesterly Armony.
Teresa Quiñonez, who owns All Most Nu, purchased the photos solved the mystery.
"Sandra Marie Pedraza was a student at Jefferson High School, in Tampa, where she was crowned Homecoming queen and was later crowned Latin American Queen 1956."
The woman then met Elvis and got this unique photo taken. The Latin American Pageant was founded in 1927 and was considered one of the most prestigious crowns in the Tampa Bay area.
Pedraza had lunch with Presley at The Colonnade Restaurant in Tampa when he was in town for a concert, according to the article, which says Pedraza died of heart problems in 1998.
Pedraza's son, Christopher David English, was happy to learn that the photos still existed. "The photos that I have are reproductions," English said. "You found the originals in the store." He had given up looking for the lost photos of his mother.
Of meeting Presley, English's mother told him the King of Rock 'n' Roll was "very handsome" but she didn't fall for him because she was in love with her high school sweetheart. "They are very special family moments," English said. "These pictures are of great significance for my family. A kind of treasure."
