I'm going to try to add a handful of photos that I found interesting. They are random ones that I found from various Internet sources that I  can't recall...

I have this picture hanging in my office, but I would like to know when this picture was taken.

I think it is the sleeve picture of The Beatles, 'On Air — Live At The BBC Volume 2'.

Here's a pretty decent write-up on the photo. 

The BBC Volume 2 Photo

In short, it's a colorized version of a black-and-white photo taken by Dezo Hoffmann on July 2, 1963.

@U.C.Nothing

The first and third photo you posted are from sometime in late 1964 (I can't recall the incident off the top of my head, but the third picture and incident are in the Anthology book). The last one is from the Mad Day Out in 1968.

Can anyone help me out with a date/location for this? It's presumably from the 1964 Australian tour, but I'd love to know from where.

I found an article in the Herald Sun (http://www.heraldsun.com.au/ne.....d956b66b80 ) which says this photograph was taken in the Melbourne Town Hall sometime between the 14th and 18th of June 1964. Hope this is of any use.

Edit: Additionally, these two sources ( http://www.meetthebeatlesforre.....-hall.html )( http://www.smh.com.au/entertai.....33r80.html ) indicate that it took place during a civic reception with mayor Leo Curtis of Melbourne at which a student played the didgeridoo to them (first source, last paragraph) and both sources suggest it's been the 16th of June 1964 at which the civic reception with the mayor took place. (At least I think it would make sense that Paul tried the didgeridoo at the day it was played to him by a student since it is very unlike he returned to the town hall again on another of the four days and played the didgeridoo but didn't try itout on the first occasion)

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

Hello @Joe , in another thread where you posted a similar question I have seen that you asked for mentioning you if an answer was found, since I didn't notice it earlier and you can't edit a post and preserve the mentioning I just decided to write a new message. I know it looks a little awkward and if you have already seen the above message before I truly apologise for disturbing it was really not my intention, I just didn't know about the importance of mentioning at the beginning and all the extra rules are so confusing still.a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

I don't think I really believe this, but I have to include it just for the sheer weirdness. 

1958 Liverpool Police Film Believed to Feature Earliest Glimpse of The Beatles

A vintage Liverpool police recruitment film dating from 1958 may very likely have a glimpse of John Lennon , Paul McCartney and his brother Michael, the McCartney brother told the Liverpool Echo March 7. If it is indeed The Beatles in the footage, it would be the earliest known film appearance of any of the group members.

Contacted by the Echo, Michael McCartney said he believed it was himself, Paul McCartney and very likely John Lennon . “Wow! That could definitely be us,” he told the paper. “It was a really big occasion in Liverpool and that’s what we used to do every summer –- take deck chairs and climb onto the concrete shed and watch a free show. And I think there is every chance John would have been there that year – absolutely. His friend, Pete Shotton, was a police cadet. And George could easily have been there, too. It’s bloody mad – absolutely fascinating and unbelievable!”

The footage was discovered by Peter Hodgson, who posted on Facebook, “I have old footage from 1958. They are seen, stood on top of their outside toilet roof, watching the annual Police Horse and dog display.” Hodgson told the Echo, “I love watching old films about Liverpool on You Tube and I made the connection with Forthlin Road when I saw the Mather Avenue police show footage. Then I worked out which house was the McCartneys’ and thought ‘Bingo!’ I nearly fell off my chair when I saw it. I consulted two local experts, Blue Badge tour guide Jackie Spencer and historian Mark Ashworth – and then I found the information on a Merseyside Police website which confirmed it was 1958.”

The complete film runs about 41 minutes long and is on YouTube. The glimpse of the Beatles comes at 34:33 in the film. The footage shows Paul McCartney , along with his brother Michael, and Lennon on a rooftop at their home at 20 Forthlin Road.

The Barry Miles-Paul McCartney book “Many Years From Now” had references to the fact that the McCartney brothers would watch the police training annually. “Paul's brother Michael had the bedroom at the back, overlooking the back yard. Next to Michael's room was the bathroom. This was a great luxury; their previous council houses, despite being built since the war, all had outside lavatories, as did most working-class housing in Britain at the time.

“The back of the house (20 Forthlin Road) overlooked the grounds of the Police Training College, headquarters of the Liverpool Mounted Police. Paul and his brother would watch them training horses, knocking pegs out of the ground with lances just as they had done in the British Raj.”

“'We used to sit on the concrete shed in the back yard and watch the Police Show every year for free,” Paul remembered. “One year, Jackie Collins came to open it and we were entranced at the sight of her comely young figure.”

Second picture:

 The original caption reads simply: "John Lennon of the Pop group The Beatles with a doll he put together himself Circa 1964". Good enough

Surely the person who wrote the original caption would know that is from the Yesterday And Today photo shoot in 1966... ahdn_paul_01

Didn't know Paul had been signing body parts for that long. Wonder if those women got a tattoo of the signature.
