Audubon @ Jan '57 Candid!

This photo MAY be from Jan 4th '57, after Presley had his pre induction physical at Kennedy Veteran's hospital and before he boarded the train (that same evening) enroute to New York City, for his third (and last) TV performance on the Ed Sullivan Show! IF it is, then Presley changed into different attire, although he may of worn the jacket twice that day! Anyhow, follow the link and see what I mean! ... 7army.html

Funky, I'm SO glad you wrote "MAY be from Jan 4th 1957" because it's not.

Here's what I wrote about the incident back in 1994 when I was planning a follow-up to "The Atomic Powered Singer"

Elvis arrived at Central Station in Memphis at 11:35 p.m. on March 18, the end of a two-day train trip that had started in Hollywood Saturday night. He looked a little weary. There had been a mix-up on the time he would arrive and he missed his parents, who had gone to the station earlier to meet him. "I don't know what happened. I told them I would get in on the 11:35 train from New Orleans," Elvis said. "I like Hollywood a lot, but I miss my road trips. I open in Chicago next Thursday night, and will begin a 10-day road trip that will wind up in Toronto, Canada. But until then I am going to loaf and try to catch up on my sleep." He said he had heard nothing more from the draft board. "Just going to wait it out. Go when they call me," he continued. When Elvis arrived at his home he climbed the fence, which the Presley family always kept locked at night, and was off to greet his mother and father, then a good night's sleep.

There you have it. March 18, 1957 around midnight or maybe even just after midnight as it would take some time to get from the Station to Audubon Drive.

That almost looks like Scotty in the far right of the picture in a white jacket and bowtie, much like the backdrop picture from Tupelo I use on each page of his site

This March 18, 1957 image is reversed -- look at the musical notes.
