Fab Four door goes under the hammer at Beatles memorabilia auction in Liverpool. Beatles fans could soon be knocking on the door of Paul McCartney’s childhood home when it goes under the hammer. The unusual piece of memorabilia, taken from 20 Forthlin Road in Liverpool, is expected to fetch about £8,500 at auction.
Unpublished photographs of The Beatles at the famous Cavern Club, a ticket for the staff dance at Lewis’s in Liverpool and a handbill for Heswall Jazz Club are also for sale. Also on offer is a handwritten letter from John Lennon, a thank you card from George Harrison and an original section of stage from the Cavern Club. They join two books signed by John Lennon while at Quarry Bank School, which could each bring in about £2,750. Early inquiries about this year’s auction, which will be held at the Liverpool Institute For Performing Arts (LIPA), have come from America, Japan, Australia, South Africa and across Europe.
