It's a nice candid.

We've had few debates about whether this was actually outside the Memphian, though:

New photoo? Could it be 1960?

Here's a better version of it:

I knew this wasn't the Memphian Theater, looks nothing like it. Neither is Elvis at the Crosstown, Malco or Suzores # 1 or # 2.

He is at the Rainbow Roller Rink.

Rainbow Roller Rink cira 1960's - Lamar Avenue, Memphis, TN.

He's walked out and turned left.

Now, we have him here on March 19th, 1960. Same shirt, same hair – a perfect match in fact. Problem is, the trousers don’t match. Could he have changed them? In any case, it’s the Rainbow – March 1960.

Great to see a shot of the rink.

I made the connection on one of the prior topics, but no one agreed:

Cool. Thanks so much Julian.
At last we have a definite venue for this photo.

I don´t think the photo is from the same date as the other one from the Rainbow Rink, he probably used that shirt on more than one occasion but the photo is most likely from March or April 1960 before he went out to Hollywood.

Cool photos! Thanks. I wonder if home movies of him skating exist?

In any event, have a nice vacation. Sounds nice.

Excellent find Julian, well done. "SKATE FOR HEALTH" is what the sign says.

PS have a great week in Tenerife, Brian!
