Back in St. Louis again

My aunt sent me a recent article from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch newspaper that was commemorating the Beatles only trip to the Gateway City in 1966.   I love these photos!   We know that the Beatles themselves were kept semi-dry from the pouring rain that night from the overhead covering.  Ringo was wearing a hat because rain was dripping on his head.   But the fans did not have a covering and from what we can see in some of these photos, they got soaking wet!   Look at the top photo.  That girl's 1966 program is ruined!  (well semi-ruined from the rain at least).   And they didn't mind one bit.   While the Beatles were miserable (and it has been documented that it was after this very concert that Paul agreed to end the touring), the fans were thrilled!
