That Tucson live photo is wonderful. Thanks!

Great idea Brian!! And I must say that I had not seen three of those photos before. The first two and the live-photo from Arizona. Do you have more Arizona-photos? I just have the one of him leaving the rodeo grounds.

Also, I never knew that the last photo was from Richmond. Is this the only non Wertheimer-photo from this date?

There are a few more here http://www.elvis-collectors.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=21334 just go down to my first post and read further. The most famous photo from this date is on the cover of the 50's box.

I feel like I just have to post the most famous photo from June 30
Image

Also, according to Elvis Day By Day this photo is supposed to be from June, 1956.

Brian -

Love this post! Idea -- why not make "June 1956" a page on your Web site? Perhaps you could extend the idea to other significant months in his life where there are available images?

Also, that's not June Juanico in that Audubon Drive family photo (5606110613juanico8gm.jpg). I have no idea who it is, but it looks a little like his friend Judy Spreckels.

The girl may also be Barbara Hearn ... thoughts?

Great post Brian. What a month June 56 was in the life of a 21 year old. :D Could be an idea for a book? :D

Fri Jun 30, 2006 12:36 pm

Glad this post got off to such a great start and glad you all like it. As you all probably know by now, the 1950's is my favourite period. I'll see if I can answer all the questions and not get people mixed up as I tend to do sometimes :lol:

Colin. Little Sister already answered this question but yes, there are many more from this show. Also a few backstage ones. I believe there was a website with all the photos but I can't seem to find it right now.

Little Sister, the one of him leaving the Rodeo Grounds, is that the one from my book or this one:

There actually are a number of other non-Wertheimer photos from Richmond where Elvis sits behind the drums and is being interviewed.

The Day-by-Day phot of Elvis and June from June 56. I'm not so sure it's from June 1956 but I can't really tell.

Doc! Thanks for the idea of making it a page on my website. I'll get into it asap.
I'm not too sure either it's June Juanico in that photo. I never thought it was but I read somewhere that it was June when she visited Elvis in JUne of 1956. I think it looks more like Barbara Hearn.

Yeah Delboy, that would be a great idea for a book. There are so many great pix from the summer of 1956 that it could easily fill an entire book or two.

Well, I think I managed not to get anybody mixed up with someone else.

Brian

Fri Jun 30, 2006 8:12 pm

Yes J, that's another photo from June 8, 1956 in Los Angeles.

Fantastic Brian!!!!! June 1956........was there any other month EVER so pivotal to pop culture???

Sat Jul 01, 2006 12:22 pm

From proof-reading passages in Day-by-Day as well as the 1956 magazine Elvis Presley Speaks I managed to date some more photos from June 1956.
I have edited a bit in my initial post so the dates are right there as well as changing the text to the photo I thought was of Elvis and June Juanico.

June 14, 1956. This is the same day where we see Elvis and his parents with his new Cadillac, as well as playing pool in the den of his Audubon Drive home.

June 19, 1956. Elvis cracked Memphis segregation by attending the Fairgrounds Amusement Park during coloured night.

Hey -- maybe "Jaykeisha" can use this in his next Elvis article. Then he'll have at least one verifiable fact in there.

Brian, I do hope you incorporate the "June 1956" idea into your site. it's fantastic -- and fun!

Sun Jul 02, 2006 3:57 pm

Doc, and everybody else interested, check out the 1956 photo-journal I just uploaded to my website http://www.brian56.dk under 50's Elvis.

I'll get around to upload some more images from each date as soon as I can. Until then, enjoy and let me know what you think of the lay-out and everything. Everything can always be made better. I'm still learning.

Brian

Great work!! I will be loking forward to see some more photos from each dates. So far it was very exciting to see the photo from the 27th, PLUS awsome detective work on dating the audubon and fairground photos!

Have a good one! 8)

Mon Jul 03, 2006 9:57 pm

Just edited June 1956 on my website with other thumbnails in same size all plus one new photo from between June 15 and June 20 1956.
Being that we already have pix from June 16 and 19 this photo and others with same clothes would be from either June 15, 17, 18 or 20 1956
