Is that you in that photograph?

The Guardian  is doing a story about people who appeared in the  background of famous photographs, and the reporter is trying to trace people from the background of two specific photographs  concerning The Beatles for an article series called 'That's Me in the Picture'.  

Were you outside of Buckingham Palace the day the Beatles visited to collect their MBEs in October 1965? The first photo is of a crowd of women wrangling with police outside Buckingham Palace as the Beatles arrived. It could be you.

Were you a fan hanging around when the Beatles were filming A Hard Day's Night? The second photo from 1964 is of school girls trying to get a glimpse of the Beatles through a train window during the filming. Was that you?

You can view the two photographs by following this link.  If you or someone you know is in either photo, the reporter would love to hear from you.  Just click the big blue button on the site to contribute to the story. 

The reporter, Laura Barnett, is also interested in club members who have other photographs of themselves with the Beatles, or in the background behind the Fab Four.  If so, you can email her directly by clicking here.
