Charles Roberts - 1957 Quarrymen Photograph with John Lennon
From Beatles Wiki - Interviews, Music, Beatles Quotes
The Perfect 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! This limited edition is crisp and clear... far better than any currently published versions!
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).
