These were taken in Memphis on Sept 9, 1954 when the band played at the opening of the Katz drugstore at the Lamar Airways shopping ctr.

I used to have all 3 but can't find them for the life of me now. One was cut up and used by that memphis recording service website that shows just Elvis leaning agains the back of the car.

Are the other 2 in original style kicking around?

Was the other one taken during daylight ? I seem to recall that that was the difference, so much so that it wasn't until more recent times that it was realised to be from the same day. sorry but I only have the two you have under this date.

I bought copies of those photos many years ago from the owner Opal Walker of Memphis.
I'll see if I have them all scanned (my scanner is not working) when I get back home from work and post the third one here.

Opal Walker is selling the photos on Ebay from time to time.

Can anyone explain the significance of the tie Elvis is wearing?

I don't know why I think this, but does it have something to do with wearing that tie when he attended high school?

Well, I only had this not too perfect copy on my PC but at least you can get an idea of what it looks like.

Maybe someone else has a better copy.

This tie appears to be the same one he wore for his professional debut at the Overton Park Shell on July 30. My guess? It was his "lucky tie."

These three photos are some of my very favorites from Elvis' early days. Just 19 years old, so young, so full of promise!
