This one came from a site I stumbled upon that has some awesome pics. Here is the link to that site...

BeatlesWiki posted a page in support of a theory that a bespeckled Paul is in a photo of a Quarrymen performance a few days earlier than the famed July 6, 1957 date.

Whether or not you believe that is Paul in that photo, the page has a good selection of pics of him wearing glasses.

I've always found the Rosebery Street photo interesting. I've often looked at it and found myself thinking, "That's Paul looking on there!" (Bottom right hand corner):

And then thinking, "Nah!"

Yes, it's 22 June 1957, but calling it, as the article does, "The Earliest Photograph of John Lennon and Paul McCartney Together" is slightly misleading. They can hardly be said to be "together" if it is Paul. All it adds is the possibility that 6 July was not the first time Paul saw The Quarrymen. An interesting photo, and one I have wondered about, but I don't think it contradicts the history about when John and Paul first met, and the first photo of them together, and not just in the same picture, comes from after they met.

I'm not convinced it's him either, but I'm not sure it isn't. Here's a blow-up of that part of the picture:

It definitely could be. But I wouldn't bet money on it tho.

His nose looks very similiar in those two pictures but his ears look a little more rounded at the top in the 2nd one. Hey, you never know, maybe Paul ''died'' before everyone says he did and therefore the guy in the second picture isn't actually Paul at all but...Faul!! Would explain the ears :)

I don't think it's him, although it does resemble him.  I wouldn't totally rule it out though.  

I've tried to figure out if he wears glasses, and I'm still not sure.  In those 5 pictures you posted, the first one could be reading glasses, and the 3rd one could just be him trying someone else's on..  I can't say for sure.  In all the other pictures they are tinted..  maybe he was just being a douche-bag and wearing his sunglasses inside.  a-hard-days-night-paul-11a-hard-days-night-paul-8

He's talking about 6 July there, isn't he? Can't see where my copy is right now. However, he's probably talking about the same jacket, which could well be this one that he's seen wearing in 1957.

I wouldn't say the jacket presents a problem. It's the glasses that throw up the doubts.
