Blue Plaque Unveiled at George Harrison's Childhood Home

29 May 2024

 
This week in Beatles news, one of the first Historic England blue plaques placed on a property outside of London has been unveiled on the childhood home of George Harrison.
 
Placed at 12 Arnold Grove in the Wavertree district of Liverpool, Harrison lived in the home until he was seven years old and had this to say about it in his memoir, I Me Mine: "To look at, it is just like Coronation Street: no garden, door straight onto the street... It was OK that house, very pleasant being little and it was always sunny in summer."
 
Revealed to the public by Olivia Harrison and culture minister Stephen Parkinson, she said: "So much of who George was came from being born and spending his earliest years at 12 Arnold Grove, undeniably a part of who George was... He left a footprint on this world, on this country, in this city, and on this street."
 
I Me Mine is available as a special Publisher's Copy, presented in a beautiful slipcase with an exclusive 6" x 4" photographic print and a bookplate signed by the publishers, Catherine and Nicholas Roylance. Also completing the I Me Mine collection is a facsimile reproduction of George Harrison's hand-written 'I Me Mine' lyric, available as a limited edition print, and an exclusive portrait, 'George Harrison in the Gardens of Cliveden House', taken by and signed by Olivia Harrison.
