The candid is new to my eyes, but the eBay seller has the incorrect date of the photo.

June 1970 is when the image was processed.

The photo of Elvis in the hallway at the International Hotel comes from July-August 1969, maybe even on his way to change his clothes for the 7-31-1969 OS.

Armed, uniformed International Hotel security man J. Tom Miller and Presley bodyguard Delbert "Sonny" West, in blue t-shirt and Van Dyke beard, lead the way, and you can see Lamar Fike behind Presley's right shoulder, Tom Parker behind the other shoulder.

It's definitely 1969, but the armed uniformed security man isn't 'Hilton', not even Ínternational' and certainly not Tom Miller.
He was one of the carry overs from the Flamingo. He did have the same kind of hair cut as Tom though.

August 17 is what I´ve got for the first photo in this thread as well.

However Julian, I believe your photo is from August 21, like this one.

It's definitely an International Hotel security man -- the patch on his right shoulder sleeve clearly shows the name. I did mistakenly type "Hilton," though -- now corrected. It did not formally become the Hilton until January 1972. And the guard sure resembles J. Tom Miller.

Doc, I asked Tom because I saw it wasn't him but wanted to make sure before I posted, he doesn't remember his name, he thinks it was 'Flanagan' and he was pulled from the Flamingo with others because they needed extra security when Elvis arrived. He does indeed resemble him.

And thank you Julian Grant for posting a shot I didn't know yet. The man looked spectacular during this time.
