Before Beatlemania hit really hard, the guys played at smaller venues to non-screaming crowds. On April 4, 1963 they played at a school that appears from this photo to be all boys, in Stowe. After the show these well-dressed, seemingly polite young men calmly waiting to receive an autograph from each member of the band (I hope their mother's didn't throw those slips of paper away!). A VERY different scene than what the Beatles will begin to see in just a few months after this photo was taken.

  1. Yes, this is a boy's school. There's an interesting story about how this concert was arranged. You can find the details, as well as many more pictures here:
