June 2, 1962

The Beatles at Hamburg airport waiting to go back home to Liverpool.

Months earlier on April 11, John, Paul and Pete would fly to Hamburg to be greeted and told by Astrid Kirchherr that the bands former bassist, Stuart Sutcliffe, had passed away the day before by brain haemorrhage. George, who had been feeling unwell, and manager Brian Epstein would fly in the following day on April 12.

The band was scheduled to perform a 7-week, 48-night residency at Hamburg’s Star Club, Grosse Freiheit district, from April 13 (Fri.) to May 31 (Thurs.) where they notched up close to 172 hours of stage time.

In the afternoon of this day (photos), they caught a Lufthansa flight to London Airport, from which they caught a connecting flight to Manchester Airport. They would arrive at their hometown of Liverpool at 7.25pm and would be driven to their respective homes.

Oh, my dear little librarian. You pile up enough tomorrows, and you’ll find you’ve collected nothing but a lot of empty yesterdays. I don’t know about you, but I’d like to make today worth remembering.

The Music Man (1962), dir. Morton DaCosta
