Hi Paul!

Are you sure that photo is from MIlwaukee?
I got him in exact same clothes on June 18, 1972 at Midway Airport in Chicago.

It could be - I've always had that photo as being the 15th... :?

My copy is copyrighted 1977 by Arlene D. Dehmer stamped "Elvis Fathers Day, June 18, 1972, Chicago Midway Airport" on the back.

It is of course possible that Elvis wore the same clothes on both days but even the chain around his neck hangs in the same place on his chest.

Too bad we can't see any of his entourrage in your photo, that might have helped telling us if it is indeed from the same date.

The date on your is probably right - they sure do seem to be from the same day.

Either way, that top pic is awesome, thanks again!

The Milwaukee date - and the photo - comes from Sean Shaver´s book Elvis in focus. But how reliable is that? On the opposite page of the book he dates a Vegas ´69 photo coming from August ´71. :roll:

Based on that building behind him, I'd say he's at O'hare??? That building looks like the Hilton at Ohare (the hotel OJ Simpson was in when he was called back to LA). I'm at Midway every other day and have never seen a building like that.

That's definitely Midway airport as it looked in 1972. The background behind Elvis was a pretty common design element, which has long since been removed.
