Famed gates of Strawberry Field are on the move in Liverpool

The famed red metal gates to Liverpool's Strawberry Field are on tour around Liverpool to promote the grand re-opening of the site Sept. 14.

Originally home to a Salvation Army children's home, the expansive grounds of Strawberry Field were a spot to play and roam for John Lennon, who grew up nearby. Years later, he took the name of the spot and added an "s" for one of his best-known Beatles songs.

The Salvation Army home, however, is no more, and the site will now re-open to the public with an exhibition center, gardens and cafe. You can learn more here.
