What an interesting candid, and new to my eyes. It is almost certainly circa 1958-60.

One guess is it is from early 1960, after Elvis was back from Germany. Another possibility is it's from Texas, before he left for Germany.

The guy in the background may be cousin "Junior" Smith. Cute kids! This appears to be a kids birthday party. Those children are now in their mid-to-late fifties, if still with us. How time flies.

bripet56 may be able to help more, he is a true expert at dating Elvis photos. Brian?

This was taken at Eddie Fadal's house in Waco, Texas, circa May 1958.

Here are three more.

Thanks Julian for the extra photos not seen before...also the "where & when" info. I assume they were taken shortly after El's army induction. :smt039

It certainly looks like Elvis' hairstyle circa June-July 1958. And it was indeed a birthday party, probably for one of Eddie's children, for sure the girl in the dark dress is Janice Fadal, aged 5, and the little boy is Dana "Reddy Kilowatt" Fadal, aged 3. Elvis gave him that nickname because he loved playing with light bulbs.
