The band that became The Beatles stops by Rosendale

The Rosendale Theatre hosted the band that would eventually become The Beatles over the weekend.

Oh, yes. It did.

The Quarrymen, which formed in Liverpool in 1956 and reunited in 1997, came to the area on Friday to celebrate the Oct. 9 (you guys!) 70th birthday of the late John Lennon.

The Quarrymen perform in Rosebery Street, Liverpool, on June 22, 1957. From left are Colin Hanton, Eric Griffiths, John Lennon, Len Garry, Pette Shotton and Rod Davis (Wikipedia photo).
Below, in a photo by Ted Dixon, the surviving members of the band,  from left, Rod Davis, Colin Hanton, a poser congressman who is not in the band but who is running for re-election so his name won't be mentioned here, and Len Garry, enjoy a moment together in Rosendale.
