This picture brings back memories

On May 24, 1956, I was 17 years old and part of the crowd that ran Elvis out of the KC Municipal auditorium. You can find the old KC Star article here. http://scottymoore.net/kansascity.html Those were the days.

Girl in the cat-eye frames looks like she's ready to yank her cross off her neck and fling herself at The King.

Who Cares!

The girls, as usual, are ecstatic, but the expression on the guy's face seems to say: "Eh! So What!"

Look

Harrington along with writer Gereon Zimmerman picked up Elvis' tour in Detroit that May and followed him to Columbus and Dayton before heading to Memphis. They were joined by another pair in Dayton that included Marvin Israel doing a piece for Seventeen magazine that also followed them to Memphis. Many of Harrington's photos were published, but none of the ones you've recently posted. These are great! Here is the piece they did for Look http://scottymoore.net/Look1956.html
