New to me. Looks earlier than 1960 to me.

Where did you find it? This is new to my eyes.

It's March 1960 in Memphis, possibly outside of the Rainbow Roller Skating Rink on 2881 Lamar Avenue. He was there on Saturday, March 19, 1960:

Elvis rents the Rainbow Rollerdome for an evening of roller-skating wars with the guys.

Peter Guralnick, Ernst Jorgensen - Elvis: Day by Day: The Definitive Record of His Life and Music (New York: Ballantine Books, 1999)

Here's another, probably from the same evening:

Gotta love that kid's gaze, and his elbow pads.

I scanned this one back in 2002 and it shows a little more of Elvis' belt and trousers which are not the same as in the ones from March 19, 1960 at the Rainbow Roller Skating Rink.

My copy is said to show Elvis leaving the Memphian Theatre in Memphis. You can see the letters "ALTH" to the left in the photo. Anybody got an idea what it can be??

Thanks Doc.

I seen it on a Blog while looking for info on another 1960's photo, (I'll post that one also). I didn't take not of the name of the blog.

Thanks bripet56, for the uncropped version. it looks like a car in the bottom right of your photo. So he could be leaving the building and getting straight into a car.

At first I thought it may not be from 1960. Even though his sideburns were short his hair looked too long (on top) to be from 1960.

Doc, Brian, possibly another one from Elvis' visit to the Rainbow Roller Skating Rink on March 19, 1960:

Looks like he's holding the same type of elbow pads.

The side marquee reads "SKATE FOR HEALTH" -- Elvis is at the Rainbow Roller Rink, probably Saturday, March 19, 1960.

The t-shirt that Elvis used here on that spring 1960 picture was first used by him in 1954 at the eagle nest club in Memphis.
