“The photo could be the closest taken to the date he met
John Lennon, showing a 15-year-old who’s come through his chubby period
and is looking good: slim and like a real teenager—no longer a boy, not
yet a man, a keen youngster singing Elvis into the North Sea
breeze at Filey Bay.”
— Mark Lewisohn about these photos taken by Mike McCartney on August 1957. from the book The Beatles: All These Years.
