condition: good
make / manufacturer: Highlight Publications
model name / number: 1964
size / dimensions: 9 1/2 x 7 inches
In 1964, Highlight Publications with permission from PYX Productions out of London created a Beatles souvenir photo album to send out to select radio stations throughout the country. The studios would then have promotions and give out the limited amount of albums to lucky callers. I’m sure the original owner of this photo album was either one of those lucky callers or knew someone at the station.

One of those stations was WLAV out of Grand Rapids. The station began broadcasting in 1948 and began playing rock early on. Like many stations, it jumped on the Beatles bandwagon immediately.

Every one of the 28 pages has both individual and group photos. One of the articles inside is called “Life with The Beatles.” There are also four other extensive bios on John, Paul, George, and Ringo.

The album, though, is mostly photos of The Beatles onstage and backstage and The Beatles tooling oround Liverpool.

Besides the many great photos, the two-page color photo stands out, a group shot with individual autographs. The front and back cover is also in color.

The photo album measures 9 1/2 x 7 inches. Aside from the very small bit of discoloration on the left back edge from decades in storage,, this souvenir photo album is in excellent shape for being 60 years old!

Although I get out to the western part of the state quite a bit, we can still arrange mailing.
