Haven't seen this before, 1955

Post by MikeFromHolland »

I guess it's made in October but might be wrong. No date was given:
1955 10 00.jpg

Didn't check ABFT to see if it's in there.

It looks like September-October 1955. Hello, "Tony Curtis"!

The link does not go to the photo, does the FB page have any more information?

Here's a better-oriented version of the photo:

Thanks for the find!

Thanks! I also thought October, his hairstyle looks a bit like we see on the October 20, 1955 pics.

There was no extra info given with the photo. I was just browsing her albums when I found and saved it....

Yup. He has a perm, to make his hair more curly, like movie actor Tony Curtis.

This same site has some beautiful (well known) HQ pics of Elvis as well:

I think, the following date is a better one:
September 3, 1955 "Big D Jamboree", Sportatorium, Dallas, Texas
