I know this one! :D There's a very similar shot in one of Ger's books. But I won't give the answer as the quiz has only just started.

Well, ok then.

1. 1956
2. Main Street, Memphis
3. Elvis in a short-sleeved shirt holding a fan magazine about himself!

Presumably it's taken by Lloyd Shearer whose photos are collected in Memphis, Lonesome by Ger Rijff.

Thanks! It's definitely 1956 but there was some debate on the mb recently about exactly when this series of photos was taken. Our resident experts finally settled on late July.
