I know that this picture was originally in a 1956 fan magazine but would like to know where & when it was taken. Anyone?

July 23-29, 1956 - Lloyd Shearer photo session. There is no exact date for these photos, can be any day(s) from the last week of July.
Reporter and photographer Lloyd Shearer was given an assignment by 'Parade' magazine from Los Angeles to cover Ellvis at home. During his week long stay in Memphis Lloyd shot more than one hundred black & whites and several rolls of color film.

Many thanks Hilton! There were some great photos published from that session. I wonder if there is a set of his photos avaliable for purchase...both b/w or color. Some have appears in old magazines...but the quality was so so. Would love to have any of them in high resolution. Cheers!
