Funky. What leads you to believe this photo was taken in the mid-seventies? My guess would be 69/70. Most likely 1970, based on other photos.

Do yourself a favour and re-read what's written in as the subject title :roll:! :wink:

My eyes, my eyes!!! Must've lost both my eyesight and my good sense there for a moment, Funky.
Will now go back into my private Hall of Shame :lol:

Nice one Funky, although you might want to change the date as this one's from between May 29 and June 10, 1969.

I was going to date it to June 1969 for sure -- someone owes Eivind an apology.

it looks like circa the time of the ttwii rehearsals to me--judging by the hair, weight and sideburns. mid-'70 is what was put seemingly by the person selling it, and it looks more like '70 than '69 to me.

Elvis' Babe, I wouldn't take the date on the photo mentioned by the seller as any proof at all as we often see photos that are misdated by several years. Especially on Ebay.

As for judging by his hair, weight and sideburns. You only see Elvis from the chest up so I would say it's very hard to tell anything about his weight.

The type of scarf was used during May-June of 1969 when Elvis was out riding the grounds of Graceland as you'll see in the first two of my photos below. Elvis either used no scarf at all or a scarf like the one in the third photo during the times we have photos of him riding in 1970. Photos from the first two "riding-sessions" were posted in Elvis Monthly in October 1969. So I'd still say 1969.

Brian, I'm fairly certain that last image in the red shirt is from June 1970.

Yeah Doc, either that or late May 1970. Elvis held at least three "autograph-sessions" at Graceland during the last week of May.

Unfortunately I don't have the summer editions of the Elvis Monthly which is sometimes a great source to date some of these candids from Graceland.
