A new video uses Google Maps to take Beatles fans on a world tour, covering more than 25,000 miles, using the group’s lyrics as a guide.
Produced by Vanity Fair, the nearly 13-minute clip begins in their hometown of Liverpool. In addition to obvious places like Penny Lane and Strawberry Field, Beatles songs that reference their parents (like “Julia” and “Let It Be”) are matched with John Lennon’s and Paul McCartney’s childhood homes.
Shots of The Beatles’ first US concerts are expected to sell for £250,000 at auction. Mike Mitchell, 18 at the time, snapped hundreds of never-before-seen photographs of the band’s performances at the Washington Coliseum and the Baltimore Civic Centre in 1964. The negatives, taken only with ambient light as Mitchell had no flash, have sat for decades in his basement.
