Elvis & The Attractions , Chicago , March 1979 - locations of photos?

Postby johnfoyle » Wed Aug 16, 2017 1:28 pm

The recent appearance by a Keith Morris photo of Elvis in a satirical website prompted a closer look at where it came from. Various sources say it and other photos were taken in Chicago in March 1979. Elvis and the Attractions played the Aragon Ballroom on Saturday March 10th 1979. That venue is on West Lawrence Avenue, in the Uptown neighbourhood. Can posters from Chicago spot locations? I have some information on a few images, which I'll add as comments to the relevant ones.

I'm waiting for a reply from the poster of the photo below , described as being taken in Chicago during childhood.

Chicago Tribune , May 1978 - the bench advertises a car dealer - is it near by ?

The logo on Steve's jacket in the other side in other photos so maybe the above is reversed ( to give Elvis more prominence ?) and should be this -

More negative reversing here - should be this -
