The Beatles – Original 1961 Pre-Fame Cavern Club Photograph
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 are publication notes from 16, and someone (probably Matthews) has written "16 Beatles." This photograph comes from the archive of "16" editor Gloria Stavers. Also included is the cover and article from the February, 1965 issue of "16" where this photo was reprinted. Pre-fame photographs of the Beatles (printed at the time) are extremely rare and desirable, and this one is a beauty ! 8" x 10", and in excellent condition.
