Rare poster for Beatles-Little Richard show unearthed in Liverpool

Workers refurbishing Liverpool's underground rail system recently came across a rare find: A vintage poster advertising Little Richard's 1962 show, also featuring the Beatles.
Merseyrail projects engineer Paul Collins said: “The contractors on site were ripping some boards off when they found the poster. They knew straight away that it was something important and needed to be saved.”
...The poster goes on display in the Beatles Story, Albert Dock in the Merseybeat Room. The room looks at how promotion from Bill Harry's music publication Mersey Beat helped The Beatles and also other bands from the 'merseybeat' era.
