Letter referring to demolition of The Cavern Club 1973

This letter on Cavern Club headed note paper is an interesting and unique slice of Cavern Club history.

Dated 9th June 1973, barely two weeks after the final concert at the original Club, it is to confirm to the North Western Gas Board that the building had been vacated and the keys passed on to the demolition company. It even reminds them that damage to their gas pipes may cause an explosion during the demolition! (Thankfully this wasn't the case.)

The letterhead displays the original Cavern Club address but under the signature it bears the new address for Cavern Enterprises, which was just across the road.

The estimate for this one off item is £100-£120.

The auction takes place on August 27th 2011 at The Paul McCartney Auditorium at LIPA.
It is organised by The Beatles Shop on Mathew Street, where lots are still being taken in up until June.
