Beautiful pics October 13, 1956 - from the Chronicle files

Post by MikeFromHolland »

.

Found a very nice article today on: http://www.chron.com/entertainment/music/article/1956-The-year-that-made-Elvis-Presley-a-star-6849855.php#photo-9446564
1956: The year that made Elvis Presley a star
It's easy to remember 'the King' as a 1970s Vegas act, crooning in a rhinestone jumpsuit. But when he was an up-and-coming rock star, Elvis Presley had an amazing work ethic.

Have a look, the article chronicles 1956 and has some very nice pics. Some of them we've seen elsewhere, but in lesser quality:
