Description

This incredibly groovy pictorial map of Liverpool was published in 1974 by the city’s Public Relations Office. It was issued with the aim of harnessing the power of ‘Beatlemania’ to promote tourism at a time of steep economic decline for the port city.

The map was designed in a similar style to the animated film Yellow Submarine (1968) and highlights the former birthplaces, schools, and homes of the Fab Four. An abstract portrait of the band, Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields, and the Yellow Submarine itself are also captured within the image.

The map is most commonly seen in a reduced format (approximately 12″ x 12″) and this poster-style issue is scarce. The bottom of the sheet includes instructions on how to follow The Beatles Trail by bus or on foot.
