Who is this woman?!

Beside Elvis is Betty Ann McMahan, a (girl?) friend of Elvis in those days. In fact, her name is mentioned in the first post's link.

This photo appears in astounding quality in Dave Marsh's book "Elvis". I would like to add a scan, but the book wouldn't fit my A4 scanner.

However, the version seen here is clearly less cropped on the sides, although probably a bit cropped on top and bottom (as compared to Marsh's book).

Thanks for posting it, Erik !

Nice spot! You are correct that this version of the 1949 photo shows a greater width than previously known.

Supposedly, the gal with him, Betty Ann McMahan, was a girlfriend, circa 1948-1950, having met in part because Gladys worked for her father, owner of a local drapery store.

Also, the photo was taken by Lauderdale Courts neighbor Margret Cranfill, not Elvis' mom:

I like that you can see the shadow of the person taking the photo. Nice find!

That has been seen before, but the detail to the left and right of Elvis and Betty is new.

I hadn't seen it before, I was familiar with the version Matt Ashton posted.

It was new for me to and this picture looks a copy of the original picture. On the right side i think part of the picture is cut off so the original is still a little bigger then we see in this larger version. It's not much but its someting:-)

Glad I found someting new... its hard to find pictures not discussed before on this forum...
