    Beatles Related - A Brick from the Legendary Cavern Club. It opened as a jazz club on January 16, 1957, in a basement that had been a bomb shelter during the war. Gradually, it became a hangout for skiffle groups, and later, when taken over by new ownership in 1959, rock and blues groups. The Beatles played there nearly 300 times from 1961 to 1963. Manager Brian Epstein first saw them perform there during a lunch session on November 9, 1961; as they say, the rest is history. This brick is one of 5000 salvaged from the original club in 1983 and sold for charity. Size is approximately 9" x 4.5" x 3" and there is a plaque attached giving the provenance. Used, but in fine condition. A great relic from the place where it all started.
