The Beatles – Original Pre-Fame Cavern Club Vintage Photograph

A rare vintage photograph of the Beatles with original drummer Pete Best, backing up American soul singer Davy Jones at The Cavern Club in Liverpool, December 8, 1961.  This was taken by Beatles’ friend and “Mersey Beat” photographer Brian Matthews.  Printed and filed away in ’61, it was rediscovered in late 1964 and printed as part of an exclusive article in 16 Magazine. On the reverse are publication notes from 16, and the notation “Cavern 1961.”  This photograph comes from the archive of 16 editor Gloria Stavers, who’s copyright stamp appears on the back.  Pre-fame photographs of the Beatles (especially those printed at the time, like this one) are extremely rare and desirable.  8″ x 10″, in excellent condition.
