1956 was an incredible year for Elvis and one in which his career was catapulted into the stratosphere with several television appearances, his Louisiana Hayride engagements, his first acting role in a feature film and an abundance of tour dates throughout the nation. Wherever he went, Elvis was adored and well received by fans. The Lone Star state of Texas was fortunate enough to receive this star for three separate tours in various cities around the state. Elvis introduced the state to his sweet rhythms in San Antonio on January 15, 1956 and serenaded fans in Galveston, Beaumont, Austin, Wichita Falls and Fort Worth over the following days. Elvis returned to Wichita Falls in April before performing the following days in Lubbock, El Paso, Amarillo, San Antonio, Corpus Christi, Waco, Fort Worth and Houston. The Lone Star state could not get enough of this young star. His last tour in Texas began on October 11 in Dallas, where Elvis entered the Cotton Bowl in a convertible and sang on the 50-yard line to a crowd of over 26,000. Elvis performed four more shows in three additional cities of Waco, Houston and San Antonio on this short four-day Texas tour. On October 12, 1956, Elvis performed at the Heart O’ Texas Coliseum and offered is an oversized black-and-white photo of Elvis smiling with a wide-grinning stagehand from that show. Early original images of Elvis with his innocent charm, striking good looks and superstar charisma are highly collectible for their visual appeal, uniqueness and scarcity. This ideal example depicting Elvis in tie and dress shirt standing with the excited stagehand perfectly represents the attributes that make these images so desirable. The stunning photo measures 11 by 14 inches (27.94 x 35.56 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The photo has some mildew staining on the reverse and one small tear in the lower right corner. Otherwise the photo is extremely clean. Excellent to Mint condition.
1956 Oversized 11 x 14 Photograph of Elvis Presley with Stagehand at Waco, Texas Concert
