Yes, they didn't use for sure a fan photo as a post card, so these photos are made by an "official".
And the only blank date from TTWII is August 13 MS.
Thank you for your research, great job

As it's known, in 1970 MGM filmed Elvis from August 10 until August 13 DS with multiple pro cameras, and then returned for 'additional angles' on 14-15. That leaves us an "empty slot" at August 13 MS and I've always believed these photos come from that show. MGM apparently sent only a photographer to capture the show and that he did - this is probably not even close to half of the photos they took that night but it's a cool little display of Elvis in action... looks to be performing "Polk Salad Annie".
Unfortunately I have the shots in (very) varying quality so decided to make an even display going by the smallest shot in the lot. If anyone has any additions, feel free to post... haven't found any new ones for this particular "action moment" in quite a while but I'm sure there are plenty - not even counting the shots from the rest of the show.
