Shreveport's Municipal Auditorium

The view from the stage of Shreveport's Municipal Auditorium. A view like this - only the seats would have been full - must have greeted a young Elvis Presley in October 1954, as he took the cue from Hayride announcer Frank Page and launched into "That's Alright Mama." Neither The Louisiana Hayride nor American pop culture would ever be the same.
