The search is on for six early fans of the Beatles captured in a photograph more than 50 years ago. The six girls were pictured with the fab four at St John’s Hall in Tuebrook, Liverpool in 1961, the first date when the group returned from playing The Star Club in Hamburg.
The negative of this image was given to Stephen Bailey who has managed The Beatles Shop in Mathew Street for 28 years. The shop is busy collecting memorabilia for the 23rd Annual Liverpool Beatles Auction which will be held at the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts in August. The annual event always turns out interesting pieces from the early days in Liverpool and Merseysiders are busy rummaging through their attics in anticipation. This photo was one such find which was discovered when a man dropped off some negatives to The Beatles Shop in Mathew Street which he said had been taken half a century ago by his father who was a photographer. Stephen got the pictures processed and found they were in perfect condition. One in particular stood out.
