Warren Smith, Elvis, Captain Woodard - Memphis. Sunday, September 23rd., 1956



At the time of this photo in Memphis, on Sunday, September 23, 1956, the officer was Sergeant Fred Woodward of the Memphis P.D. Notice also Woodward's tie shows "1856 ... 1956" -- honoring some kind of historical event, one suspects.

I've edited my original post accordingly.

Yes, I noticed this too.

It was the commemoration of the Centennial of the Mid-South Fair. Check this :

http://midsouthfair.com/about-history.php

"In 1956 the Fair celebrated its 100th year. The climatic ceremony of the Centennial Celebration was the time capsule being buried on the Fairgrounds, which will be opened in 2056. The centerpiece of the event was the Centennial Village, a Williamsburg-like replica of an 1856 town portraying the day-to-day existence of its people.

The most memorable moment of the Centennial Fair was the surprise appearance of Elvis Presley. Elvis had a penchant for the Fairgrounds, especially the Dodgem Car rides and the Zippin Pippin roller coaster. He would rent the Fairgrounds amusement park at midnight so that he and his friends could ride all night. The amusement park was not the only attraction Elvis found at the Mid-South Fair. He also admired the beautiful winners of the Miss Mid-South Fair and Youth talent Contests."
