A Doorway to History!

38 Kensington, Liverpool is a significant address in Beatles History.

In 1955 Percy Phillips established his recording studio at that address, and in 1958 a band called The Quarrymen (then comprising John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, John "Duff" Lowe and Colin Hanton) recorded their version of That'll Be The Day there. That song and the b-side, In Spite of All The Danger - a Lennon/Harrison composition - appeared on the first Anthology CD.

This is the original front door that stood in the threshold that the embryonic Beatles, like many other Merseyside artists, would have crossed to make that very recording.

The studios closed in 1969, and recent refurbishments to the property, which bears a plaque proclaiming it's place in Beatles history, has included the original door being removed and replaced by the current owners.

This is fabulous opportunity to own a piece of Beatles/Merseyside history.

The door will be offered for sale in our annual Liverpool Beatles Auction in August along with around 300 other lots of interest to Beatle fans.

The estimate on this unique item is as yet to be confirmed.
