I've always been a fan of maps and ariel photos. Inspired by the book The Beatles' London, I applied this interest to some Beatles things. In this case, the photos reportedly shot on the roof of The Top Ten Club in Hamburg in Spring 1961. This was to help prove that these pics were indeed shot at this location.

Just thought other folks might find this interesting. Enlargements of the photos can be seen HERE

White arrow.
This one is a bit difficult to discern.
An antenna is seen in photo 4.
The arrow points to what looks like an antenna shadow.

Very cool Chazz! Whenever I get the chance I poke around on your Savage Young Beatles site! LOVE IT. Any updates/additions coming to it soon?

A friend of mine is going to Hamburg in May, and I know he's keen to get up on that roof and take some photos ;-)

Sometimes my wife asks me why I spend so much time on this forum. What can we possibly discuss after all these years? Then I show her some of these threads.

Awesome, Chazz! :good:
