Hey greybeard. The last picture is Elvis leaving the Hotel for his show at the Macon Coliseum. In the book "Elvis On Stage" by Keith Alverson you can see him before he "takes it to the lower deck". The same glass in his hands, Joe, Sam and Ginger. Your's a Rare photo I would say.

The last pic shows a bit of agility from our man - but why did he find himself in such rundown areas?

He was doing what he said he did...being sneaky!

the reason for being in such places as dumpsters, back-doors
loading areas, ect. rickeap is to avoid crowds and fans ..
so he could get from one venue to another without being too late.

It started in the 50's
