Released in 2008 A DAY IN THE LIFE
captures The Beatles through the lens of just one photographer and over the course of a single day; strolling through the streets of Liverpool and along its docks, at Brian Epstein's NEMS offices, to rehearsing and performing one of their final gigs at The Cavern on Mathew Street.
A portfolio of 24 large format prints accompanied by a signed book featuring Michael Wards recollections of that historic day.
Before the band took the stage, it was announced that Please Please Me
had just made it to No 1 in the charts:
'There was no screaming - not like they started to get later on. You could clearly hear the band, even on the quieter numbers. I was quite surprised by the strength of their melodies.' Michael Ward (1929-2011)
