The Beatles of Yesteryear

A while ago at the scrap store, I bought a lovely old wooden box with sliding lid - a bit the worse for wear. Yesterday I decided to give it a clean and took out the piece of yellowed newspaper which had served as a liner.

Imagine my astonishment to discover a front page of the Scottish Daily Mail dated Thursday, April 30 1964 and a huge photo of the traffic-stopping crowds of thousands of Beatles' fans waiting for their idols to come out of the cinema where they'd played.
