Charlie Roberts

On a warm sunny day on June 22, 1957, The Quarrymen agreed to play at a party on Rosebery Street, organised by Charlie Roberts’ mum Marjorie to mark the 750th anniversary of Liverpool being award City status. It was here Charlie Roberts, armed with a borrowed camera, was able to capture the very first photo of John and his Quarrymen playing live.
