The very first photograph of John Lennon performing in public!
High-quality limited-edition giclée print, signed by the photographer Charles Roberts
AVAILABLE FOR THE FIRST TIME & UNAVAILABLE ANYWHERE ELSE!

The Perfect Holiday Gift for Beatles Fans

In June 1957, Charlie Roberts organized the Rosebery Street party in Liverpool and took along his mum's borrowed Kodak Brownie camera to photograph his pals John Lennon and the Quarrymen's first public appearance. He took a number of photos, but only 3 have survived the decades.

You've seen Charles Roberts' photo in Philip Norman's Shout, various Mark Lewisohn books, the film Imagine, and The Beatles Anthology.

But until now it's NEVER been offered for sale as a quality print, and signed by the photographer!

Beatleswiki and Charles Roberts are now making available a limited-edition archival-quality 8" x 10" giclée print, restored, produced and signed by Charles Roberts. The photo, shipped to you from Liverpool, is professionally matted. Your satisfaction guaranteed! The photo is crisp and clear, the best ever.

Charles' iconic image of John Lennon performing with the Quarrymen at the Rosebery Street party on June 22, 1957 is the first known photograph of John playing in public (or anywhere else).

Photo: © Charles Roberts

The print is being offered in a Limited Edition of 300, each personally signed by Charles Roberts, and, if desired, personally inscribed.
