Here's another scan without the text. Perhaps one of the copies?

Great pic.

Although such a major event in Elvis' early career there seem to be some disagreement on what actually happened during those two days (Oct 19-20, 1955)
According to newspaper ads Elvis played the Circle Theater on both days at 7:30 and 10:00 p.m.
On the 20th he also played Brooklyn High School during the afternoon as well as St Michael's Hall during the evening.

Brooklyn High School, Oct 20, 1955.

St Michael's Hall, Oct 20, 1955

This is supposed to be from Brooklyn High School but Scotty and Bill wear red shirts as opposed to above pic. Could this be from Circle Theater on either 19th or 20th??

Sorry Steve. but the colorized photo that was used on "Elvis at SUN" is from July 31, 1955 in Tampa, Fl.

The one I posted has always been reported as being from Cleveland so I'll just file it as Circle Theater untill other information comes forward

Sorry Steve, just checked the CD on internet and only showed the front.
You're of course right, it's the same pic.
