I don't know about the story behind the photo, but it was taken December 15, 1956, backstage at the Louisiana Hayride, prior to his last concert there.

The following photo matches perfectly the one you posted (clothing, guitar, background wall...) :

The image on the original post has suddenly disappeared. It's also in hilton22000's post, but here it is again by itself :

I moved the image to another album and did not realize it would be deleted here.

And is the image below from the same date?

I would definitely say it is.

There is that background again, he is wearing the same ring on his left hand, and the tie is the same we see in the photo I uploaded in my first post (if you zoom that photo in, the same black spots are visible in the top part of the tie in both photos).

Thanks for your post ! :smt006

Elvis with record shop owner Stan Lewis. Notice Elvis' hand is a little lower than the usual way he holds a woman. Hmm I wonder why. :D

Nice photo, Jove. Thanks.

That's Stan's wife, Paula, on the left.

See this link for a (very small) alternate pic, and a little background on Lewis and his career.
