A candid photo of Elvis Presley holding his baby daughter is one of a collection of never-before-seen images of the King of rock 'n' roll to have been unearthed.

The eight pictures were taken in the late 1960s and early '70s, and one show the music icon in a sharp blue suit clutching new-born Lisa Marie Presley in 1968.

Other photos are of him riding a horse at his ranch in Memphis, holding a bottle of beer while wearing a garish yellow shirt and being driven in a car in Las Vegas dressed in his famous white jumpsuit.

It is believed they were taken by an associate of Elvis who worked with him in the music industry. The photos were placed in a storage lockup for many years before being bought by a British collector.
