... Dont wanna spoil the party, Funky, but this photo was widely available in Memphis souvenir shops, around the time of the 20th anniversary of his death... Back to the photo vaults, Funky :wink:

It's new to me thanks Funky!

Is that Alan Fortas on the left (Elvis' right)? Who is the other guy?

No, that´s Arthur Hooten on the left. I believe the other one is Elvis´ cousin Gene Smith.

... RE Reading my above mail to you, sort of, comes across rather egocentric. Sorry, I enjoy your research a whole lot!

I dare say that was the last time he attended the Mid - South Fair!

Nope Funky, that wasn´t the last time Elvis visited the Mid-South Fair.

Check into my website at http://www.brian56.dk and go to Flashback and read what the Commercial Appeal wrote about Elvis´ visit to the fair on September 29, 1956. I´ve put 4 photos on the site as well from Elvis´ visit to the Fair.

Sincerely
Brian

Great shot, another I've not seen before. The 1953 visit yielded a photo with coursin Gene as well -- JAT published it a few years back.

You meen the one where they are both dressed up as cowboys, right? I was sure I had it somewhere on my harddrive, but I can't seem to find it. But I do have one that I am pretty sure is from the Mid South Fair too... or am I wrong? Is it actually from when Elvis was still living in Tupelo, taken at the Mississippi-Alabama State Fair and Dairy Show?

Also, here is one more from Elvis' 1956 visit to the the fair. You can find it in better quality on http://elvis.fan-sites.org/

Note the shoes. They are from Elvis own line of products. Pretty good PR, letting the king himself wear them. What kid, would NOT want to be seen wearing them? 8)

Could this one be from September 29, 1956 too? For those who don't recognise her, the lady is bombshell Jane Russel.... did the fair attract a lot of celebrities?

Outstanding pictures! In the bottom photo, the guy with his back facing the camera and some sort of a bag over his shoulder is dressed and looks very much like EP from a side view. Any idea who that is?

It is Nick Adams. Elvis' friend from Hollywood who would accompany Elvis home to Memphis. It seems like Nick stayed with him almost the whole fall. You can also see him riding with Elvis on his Harley if you go to Brian's site http://www.brian56.dk/560929.html.
