I was originally also told it was June 15, 1972 and later told it was June 18, 1972...so I'm now not sure, though you are usually 99.99999% right on your dates 8)

I have an original copy of the photo that I got from the woman who took it who's name I can't recall. And she wrote on the back of the photo "Milwaukee, Wisconsin June 15, 1972 Hotel Parking ramp. I can only go by what she wrote and hope it's correct.

Thanks Russ, I will make the change for that photo - the other one (in the link below) is from the 18th though, correct? 8)

And now I checked with my own details, it clearly states June 18th.
On top of the pic, I have copied the writing from the back of the photo.
Since this photo has more detail (of Joe Esposito), this could be the original picture with the correct date:

That last one is a real beauty. Well, they're both beautiful photos.

I bought my copy of the last photo many years ago from the photographer Arlene Dehmer and on the back it says:

Copyright 1977, Arlene D. Dehmer
Elvis Fathers Day
June 18, 1972
Chicago Midway Airport

Thanks Russ.

BTW: Father's Day - the 3rd Sunday of June - was indeed on June the 18th in 1972. It's also interesting to notice that according to "Elvis All shook up - Day By Day" (L. Cotten) Elvis did not stay in a hotel in Milwaukee but stayed in Chicago when he performed in Milwaukee (it's only 90 miles). This maybe the final confirmation that the picture info as provided to you was incorrect.
