Description

Extraordinary 1962 candid snapped by McCartney's brother, signed by the young John Lennon

Early vintage glossy 4.75 x 3 photo of Lennon in a leather jacket taken by Paul McCartney’s brother Mike in 1962, signed and inscribed on the reverse in blue ballpoint, “Love to Tonie, from John Lennon, xxxx.” Handsomely double-matted and framed with a reproduction of the front of the photograph to an overall size of 11 x 14.25. In fine condition. The photo was taken in the McCartneys’ back garden in late September/early October 1962 while they were working on the song ‘I Saw Her Standing There.’ Accompanied by letters of authenticity from Tracks, Perry Cox, and noted Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo, who states that this was signed shortly after it was taken. An exemplary and unusually early inscribed photograph of the future rock 'n' roll superstar.
