BEATLES ART: THE BEATLES IN HAMBURG, 1960
The golden hour falls on August 16, 1960 as Allan Williams's battered van is unloaded onto the docks of mainland Europe.
Inside are musical instruments and a little dance hall band from Liverpool. One of its members sits on the waterfront in Hamburg, contemplating his fears and dreams, unaware of the epic on the horizon. Listen closely, and you'll hear the seagulls squawk.
