The Beatles in Wellington

I’ll assume that this photo of the Beatles on the balcony of the St George hotel is protected by the sort of copyright scrutiny that doesn’t encourage bloggers to share, so CLICK THIS LINK.

A copy of it was in my hotel last week, and I said to myself wait a minute I know that place. It’s just a couple blocks from the office!

That tour was a huge deal for little ol’ NZ. Times have changed… lots of visiting acts stay less than a day, and the Beatles wouldn’t be found at the St George any more with its promise of long or short term accommodation. But that solid Art Deco construction easily withstood the last round of earthquakes and looks like it will be around a good while longer.
