Exceptional vintage glossy 10 x 8 photo of the band posing together in a row, signed in fountain pen, “John Lennon,” “George Harrison,” and “Ringo Starr,” and in blue ballpoint, “Paul McCartney.” Reverse of photo bears a “Studio ‘4’ and Topical Press Agency,” London stamp. In very good condition, with overall scattered creasing and surface impressions (two heavier diagonal creases to lower right corner, one of which passes through Harrison’s signature) and single pinhole to top edge. Accompanied by full letters of authenticity from Roger Epperson/REAL and PSA/DNA. Research indicates that this photo was taken backstage at the Odeon Cinema Southend, May 31, 1963, where they were performing for day 13 of their UK tour with Roy Orbison. A larger-than-usually seen, boldly signed, and visually impressive image of the Fab Four.
