The 2 pictures were definitely taken on the same day, at different times - you can see that Elvis sideburn is exactly the same shape / size.

I do think that this is august, during Lisa's stay.

Where's his wheelchair? Wasn't Elvis an invalid in 1977? How could he possibly be riding around Graceland like that? I think the pic is photoshopped.

That was not a cigar. Elvis Presley did not smoke cigars after July 27, 1975. Not once did he do that. What you see in the picture is a twig.

Thank god for the internet to smash a lot of these myths!

One clue is the sideburns -- they don't look like August 1977.

It's hard to figure out just by the sideburns. His hair is blown back and they would appear different than with his hair down. And just from the photos his sideburns didn't look like that anytime in 1977.
April? He looked bigger then, but then again, pictures can fool you in that area as well. I would still say August until someone comes up with a proven date

I have both photos but with no dates on the back. Even though he is riding two different trikes, he looks almost the same in both shots.

Well folks, they are from April 8, 1977 - I have confirmed this and will be changing the info on the link to reflect this new found information - thanks to E-Cat for his help with this 8)

Lisa Marie sandwiched in between Elvis & Ginger as they ride around Memphis on a couple of Elvis' three wheel motorcycles at different times on April 8, 1977 (notice the white seats on the first one, and black seats on the second one)

Damn it! I could kick myself for not thinking of the "obvious". I knew I had seen those glasses (Ginger's)somewhere! As a matter of fact I was going to follow that lead tonight. Oh well, great job, Paul and E-cat for digging up the date. And another myth just fell to the ground.
Well, sometimes when I look in the mirror, I can't believe it's me either..truth is tough to take sometimes :)

Just wondering

I assume that the picture where Ginger is wearing glasses is made my a woman since her husband was sitting a wheelchair.

Thank you Elvis buddies.

This is, by far, the BEST Presley forum on the internet! Nice work, all.

:shock: OMG We now have an early April (8th) '77 candid! I never thought we would have one. Even better, we now have one of Presley, three days after checking out of Baptist! Well done to all, indeed! I am over the moon :lol:!

The shots look like they were taken in nearly the exact same spot too ~

This is all good providing the ebay seller wasn't mistaken about her dates ;)
