|Be on the lookout: Stolen George Harrison photo|
[Posted by Dave Haber on Thursday, 09/03/09 2:34 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
On Wednesday morning we sadly posted an article from the Liverpool Echo which reported that an exhibition of George Harrison memorabilia had been closed early after a rare signed picture of the Beatle was stolen.
The Liverpool Echo article did not include an image of the stolen photo. However, a fan who took a picture of the item at the exhibition has sent us this image:
Exhibition organizer Denise Theophilus was alerted on Monday by a visitor that one of the display cases was slightly ajar. She discovered a picture of George on set of Shanghai Surprise, valued at ?800, was gone.
We've been told that Denise now says that four Americans were responsible, two women and two men. One of the women was the daughter of one of the men, and Denise says she was distracted by one of the women who wanted to chat about how George died. The theft occurred while her view of the back cabinet was blocked by one of the men standing in front of her while chatting with the woman.
We reproduce the photo here on the Beatles News Blog in hopes that the more fans are familiar with the piece, the more difficult it will be for whoever stole it to resell it.
