The Beatles – Original 1961 Pre-Fame Cavern Club Photograph #2
An extremely rare vintage photograph of the Beatles performing at The Cavern Club, Liverpool, 1961. This was taken by Beatle friend and "Mersey Beat" photographer Brian Matthews. Printed and filed away in '61, it was rediscovered in late 1964 and printed as an exclusive in the January 1965 issue of"16 Magazine." On the reverse, Matthews has written "Cavern 1961/Paul & John get down to it. A few months later they got down to smashing every record the world of entertainment has ever known." This photograph comes from the archive of "16" editior Gloria Stavers and has the Gloria Stavers collection stamp on the reverse. Pre-fame photographs of the Beatles (printed at the time) are extremely rare and desirable, and this one is a beauty ! Included is an original copy of 16 Magazine issue where this photograph appears. (note: the flaw in the the lower right corner appears in the negative and the issue of 16 where this is reproduced.)
