Post here your Elvis' pictures

Looking for a 1956 live shot (Charleston, June 28, 1956)

Sun Dec 29, 2013 11:18 am

I came across a really cool live shot of Elvis on Facebook a while back and meant to ask the photo experts on here about it but it slipped my mind. I can't find the pic in question now, but I think that it was spoken about as being from the June 26, 1956 show in Charlotte (possibly the day before in Savannah). It's a fantastic action shot with Elvis in a low-down pose, I think with a leg outstretched. Hard to explain exactly, but I think that anyone who has seen it will know what I mean. If anyone knows which shot I'm talking about and has it, please share.

Thanks.

Thanks for taking the time to post. It's neither of those though. He's on the floor in the photo, with a real rocker pose. I don't think I'd ever seen it before. Wish I'd made a copy of it, but I got distracted with other stuff.

Ah yes, that is the one. Thanks guys. I knew it was that tour, but was obviously a couple of days out.

What a superb pose from the young rocker. Love it.

I'm just a poor boy.

I've changed the topic title so it shows up if someone else is searching for the image.

Thanks again.
