I mean these depression era shacks with no real amenities must have been prime targets for post WW2 slum clearance projects?
Considering it would have been the mid 1950s by the time Elvis achieved national fame - would these neighbourhoods have been cleared before then?

I believe it may be the same house.
Check out this picture of Vernon at the house in the 60's i believe.

Elvis would know wouldn't he?
Also, Janelle Mccomb told the news crew once that was the house.

I doubt very much that he payed much attention to the shotgun shack as a child and teenager, - except that he recalled how poor they were. Sure, this is speculation on my part, but roots thinking is often something that starts when one is WELL into adulthood.
