Pictures of The Beatles in the 1950's
« on: November 21, 2014, 10:13:40 AM »

I'm trying to collect as many pictures of The Beatles in the 1950's and earlier as possible. There are a lot of pictures from 1960 onwards, but not so much that predate 1960. There are some pictures here. Can you give me a hand?


George obviously going for a swim. Summer 1958.


George and his older brother Peter.



George and Paul during a hitchhike adventure, 1957.


John, ten years old.


Paul and George and ?. Date unsure


Paul, summer 1957.


I believe that should be Arthur Kelly instead of Jim. This picture is also described in Mark Lewisohn's Tune In.

Not sure whether this is 1950's. I guess not as Bob Wooler is pictured here with Paul and John.

I think this pretty interesting. It is stated that the only known picture of John and his mother Julia together is this one, which is well-known:



But then I bumped into this:



Could very well be Julia. But is the baby on her arm John? Or maybe one of his sisters?

Seems to be Jacqueline in 1950.
