In 1960, one of the early Hamburg Beatles fans was Monika Pricken. At the time she was just 17 (see what I did there?) and since George was the same age, she became friends with him. According to Monika's account, it was not a romantic friendship at all. Her Dad owned a clock shop in town and here you can see Paul and George photographed inside her Dad's shop. When George eventually got deported for being underage, it was Monika's mum that packed him the sandwiches to take on the trip back to Liverpool. I am sure George's mum, Louise, appreciated her looking after her son like that.
