Rare Lennon Photo Unearthed

John Lennon - 1958

A photo of John Lennon taken in 1958 was found in a cupboard where it was forgotten for almost 50 years. The picture shows Lennon, then 17 years old, with friend and Quarrymen manager, Nigel Walley. The image is appearing ina BBC show called Inside Out North West, which is reviewing Lennon and the Beatles’ early years.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Quarrymen’s founding. Lennon’s original skiffle group is still playing shows and making appearances at Bealtes-related events.
