Thu Sep 21, 2006 10:30 am

Presley arriving in (I am assuming) Las Vegas, with the Hilton' van on hand for luggage transportation . . . . .

If only I could decipher what is written on the side of the van roof' banner, then I would know where the shot was taken! It is safe to say it isn't the fall of '76 (December Vegas engagement) because it looks like either Hebler or West (Red) is standing over to the right hand side of the candid!

I thought due to his size and the rainbow on the Hilton banner being consistent with the December 1975 menu this was from that engagement.

I'm think maybe March/April 1975 in Vegas...

Check out the guy at the bottom of the stairs. Same guy as in the Hilton-photo and wearing the same clothes.

Notice the magazine Elvis is holding in his left hand. In the Hilton-photo you can see the magazine in front of Joe Esposito.

I'd say the photo is from Elvis' arrival in San Diego on April 24, 1976. The guy with the back to the camera in white might be Dave Hebler??

Sounds (and looks ) just about right, Brian. But still doesn't explain the Hilton logo on the van. Care to? :)

The Hilton has/had hotels in many cities.

Brian, nice one.

I could see that the sign on the van said the s..... hilton, but i couldn't make out the city. I kept thinking about Saracuese, but now you've said it, u can make it out on the banner.

San Diego, and almost 20 years to the day - see April 4th and 5th 1956.
