A photo showing Sir Paul McCartney when he was a schoolboy is to be auctioned along with 314 other pieces of Beatles memorabilia later this month.

The shot of his class at Joseph Williams School in Liverpool in 1952 shows McCartney stood in the back row, reading a comic.

The photo, which was previously unseen, was taken into The Beatles Shop near the Cavern Club in Liverpool

A school photo of Ringo Star and a lithograph for the song ‘Yesterday’ will also be up for sale.

Manager at The Beatles shop, Stephen Bailey told the BBC: “This is our 19th annual memorabilia auction and you would have possibly thought that the Crown Jewels would have long since been found and sold but that is just not the case.

“I think that the present financial climate has concentrated people’s memories and the extra cash that they will make comes in handy at a time like this.”

The auction will be held on 29 August at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts.
