Rare pictures of The Beatles’s performance at the Cavern Club in London in their early days have been discovered. The Beatles launched their first single, called “Love Me Do,” and the images were clicked in 1961, one year before it.

In the pictures, you can see John Lennon and Sir Paul McCartney singing, with Pete Best on the drums and George Harrison on the guitar. Mark Lewisohn, a historian, called the guys “undernourished lads” after their Germany tour. He said the young lads were between 18 and 20 and recently performed in Hamburg. They slogged for 90 days and put in 500 stage hours. He added that this marathon had made them slender, and it felt like their bodies and heads were strangers.

You will not see other photos that show the band dressed in a way like this, the media reports said. They wore cotton tops and leather trousers. Lewisohn has written several books on The Beatles and mentioned that the band was playing for evening or lunchtime audiences in 1961. After three months, Paul and John visited Paris and returned with “The Beatles haircut.” After a few days, Brian Epstein saw the band at the Cavern and became their manager, changing the course of history. Ringo Starr replaced Pete Best in 1962.
