Floor Board from Historic Beatles Meeting Place for Sale
As Beatles lore has it, Paul McCartney and John Lennon first met as wee lads in Liverpool on July 6, 1957. That's when the two aspiring rockers were formally introduced by mutual friend Ivan Vaughan at St. Peter's Church. Two weeks later, Lennon invited McCartney to join the Quarrymen and the rest is music history.
Now, fans can own a piece of that historic meeting thanks to congregation member Donna Jackson, who is helping auction off a piece of the floor board from the hall on Ebay. According to Jackson, via the Examiner, the 22cm x 7cm x 3cm block, which comes with a certificate of authenticity, originates from a side room that was damaged by fire in 2001.
It's not, however, the first time such a memento has been sold. Another block auctioned to benefit the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts (LIPA) went for £250 in August.
The price of the current Ebay auction, which ends on Oct. 23, has already surpassed £500, which is approximately $799. All proceeds from its sale will go to the Church.
