It's not August 1956. Maybe sometime in 1955?

In Elvis Files it's dated March 2, 1956. It's taken at the Memphian Theater and in one of the alternative pics we can see a small piece of the poster to the film Road to Denver, directed by Joe (Joseph) Kane, in the background. The movie premiered in June 1955, but I guess it circulated for a while. Even though he looks very young in the photo above, Elvis looks very much like he did around March 1956 in the alternative pics.

This isn't from 1955, it's from 56, indeed. We had a discution about these photos long time ago, right here in Picture Section.

Friday, March 2, Elvis was stopped for speeding on Riverside Drive in Memphis - 38 miles an hour.
Later the same day, between 5:00 and 6:00 PM, Elvis appeared at the Bob Neal Record Shop, where you can ’Always Find 50 Top Pops! 25 Top R & R!' Fans were invited to come and meet Elvis, get his autograph and buy some of his records.
