The best I can come up with is Spring, possibly May 1956,
the one thing I am certain of is that it as taken by Marvin
Israel & has a double page spread in the book Elvis Presley
1956, not much help I know maybe Brian can be more acurate.

If it is by Israel, then the image is from the end of the May 1956 tour, probably May 27 in Dayton, OH.

Many of these photos where we only see Elvis' face are often very hard to date but thanks to Marvin Israel we know that this one is form Dayton, May 27, 1956.
