So far nothing conclusive, even the Billboard from August only says "recently".
Unfortunately I can't tell anything from the hair in any pictures.
"Recently" would not refer to a show three months earlier when Elvis had just played Jacksonville only two week prior.
And you can't tell anything from the hair?? I'd say you can't get much closer to the same hair than in these two photos although not from the exact same angle.
I don't think we'll be able to come up with any better proof for the Jacksonville-riot than the Billboard clipping. But I'd of course love to see ANY kind of evidence pertaining to any of the shows back in 1955.

OK, here's something else. The Davis sisters and Carters were definitely on the May shows. Here's an early page I did from a fan that saw Elvis in 55 in Asheville. I had to actually help her write the letter to get details and dates straight which isn't really important but it does show an ad for the May 17th show.
What happened to the May 16 picture Brian, it doesn't show anymore?

Kenny Wilder scribbles from Orlando, Fla.: "The Andy Griffith show was here for two days recently and scored a great hit, with both nights a sellout. As usual Elvis Presley stole the show, along with Ferlin Huskey. It looks as tho the two will return here soon,"

But I'm glad you're tending to believe that the photos are from the July gig rather than the May. By the way, Elvis wore that same (or very similar) shirt on the Memphis show on August 5.

Do you have a clipping for Florida shows in July that include the Davis and Carters?
Some Billboard articles were submitted long before publication date, so your assumption cannot be considered fully accurate. Thus, "recently" could imply two weeks earlier or ten weeks earlier.

No, he wouldn't remember. Those times were a blur. He might remember it happening but not particularly when or where. It was basically drive, play, eat and drive some more. Besides, while that was going on he'd be taking care of the gear.

These should all be credited to Jacksonville, FL - Friday, May 13, 1955 ->

Just look at the differences in the two pics.
In one the guy is younger than the other.
The nose, eyes, ears and mouth are different in the 2nd one.
Obviously two different guys with a similar haircut !

James, that is so awesome. Is that photo the backside of the Armory in Tampa??
bripet56 wrote:By the way, since publishing the book I have come to learn a lot more about Elvis' cars and I hate to admit it but that's NOT his Crown Victoria. Fact is that it most likely is a 1953 Ford Mainline Ranchwagon:

It was at this time (July 28-29, 1955) that Ardys Bell bumped into Elvis who after having only escaped the entourage of girls who had taken his shirt off, was hiding out back near an ice machine. Ardys found Elvis eating ice from the machine and let her pose with him while her friend took a few photographs of the scared and shirt-torn Elvis.
