Please add any pics of The Beatles (group or individual) from 1960 that you may come across. Good-sized and good-quality ones

preferred. I'll add them to the picture gallery section of the site.

Thanks!

If you're not sure which year a picture is from, please add it to the miscellaneous/unidentified thread.

@Joe Thought you might find this interesting. This is the photograph of Stuart and John's Gambier Terrace "flat" used in The People's THIS IS THE BEATNIK HORROR article in July 1960. Note the poster/flyer on the wall - The Silver Beetles below Gerry and the Pace-Makers, and Allan Williams sitting on the left of the fireplace.

Thanks. I've seen that before. It's not known whether the figure with his back to the camera is Lennon, though it'd be nice if it was.

I would say the hair is wrong for it to be John in 1960.

In Paul's handwriting, from May/early June, a setlist for their run of Saturday gigs during June/July at the Grosvenor Ballroom in Wallasey as The Silver Beetles. You can tell it's not for a single gig as there are many *'s songs, and if you check the * it reads "ones which aren’t done every week". So this shows them taking care not to perform the same set there every week. Some interesting song titles in this:

Great find, @Ron Nasty! I wonder if Lucille, Oh My Soul and Lawdy Miss Clawdy were added later, or if there's another reason why those were written in pencil. Either way, looks like a great set list to me, and I love the added notes. Very cool.

I'm sure everybody already knows these, but they're some of my favourite 1960 pictures...

Many more pictures here, including the famous portraits at the fairground. By the way, is it me, or does that jumper John is wearing in his passport photo look an awful lot like the one Paul is wearing in the fairground photo?

Feck, @Mademoiselle Kitty >^..^<! I hadn't noticed those! And had to move my screen around to make them out! I think added later, as Lawdy Miss Clawdy sits beside the list of things to take with them, "Words, Strings, Plec". Maybe as they were looking for more possibles to avoid repeating themselves too much.
