Opportunity knocks for Beatles fans at auction

Thursday, August 15, 2013

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Unpublished  photographs of The  Beatles at the famous Cavern Club, a  ticket for the staff dance at Lewis’s in  Liverpool and a handbill for Heswall  Jazz Club are also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.
