    I love photos of The (very early) Beatles, The Silver Beatles, The Beat Brothers, Rory Storm with Ringo, The Quarrymen, childhood,...
    So here is a thread to slap 'em all down in one place.
    Only PRE-FAME photos allowed.

    It's the famous Ivan Vaughn, who introduced Paul and John in 1957

    How old were Paul and George here? George looks crazy young. Looks 14 - max.

    My favorite era of photos of the Fabs is pre 1962. Just amazing that so many photos from that period exists. Compare to the Who or the Stones. Not even comparable really. I would love to see more early Who and Stones actually.
    I will definetely contribute to this thread!

    This thread is going to be me thinking George was beautiful and then feeling guilty about it because at this point, I’m a good 13-14 years older than he was in most of these pictures ... :angel:

    Some people might know for sure, but my guess would be about 1959? So George was 16. By his own admission, at that point, “I looked about 12.”

    That is NOT Tony Sheridan. It is Johnny "Guitar" Byrne of the Hurricanes.
