ABOUT THIS IMAGE

Taken February 11th, 1964, Washington D.C, United States
(Library of Congress)

This print was produced exclusively for the podcast Travels Through Time, a mixture of serious history and playful parlour game.
"This public domain photograph taken by Marion S. Trikosko captures the Fab Four shortly before their first ever show in America – over eight thousand fans packed the Washington Coliseum on a snow covered February evening to hear The Beatles rip through Roll Over Beethoven (Chuck Berry cover), From Me to You, I Saw Her Standing There, This Boy, All My Loving, I Wanna Be Your Man, Please Please Me, Till There Was You (Meredith Willson cover), She Loves You, I Want to Hold Your Hand, Twist and Shout (The Top Notes cover) and finally, Long Tall Sally (Little Richard cover).

The band was covered in jelly beans. George Harrison later recalled, 'That night, we were absolutely pelted by the fuckin’ things. They don’t have soft jelly babies there; they have hard jelly beans. To make matters worse, we were on a circular stage, so they hit us from all sides. Imagine waves of rock-hard little bullets raining down on your from the sky. It’s a bit dangerous, you know, ’cause if a jelly bean, travelling about 50 miles an hour through the air, hits you in the eye, you’re finished. You’re blind aren’t you? We’ve never liked people throwing stuff like that. We don’t mind them throwing streamers, but jelly beans are a bit dangerous, you see! Every now and again, one would hit a string on my guitar and plonk off a bad note as I was trying to play.'"

– Jordan J. Lloyd

This historical photograph has been meticulously researched and rendered into colour from a black and white original by a skilled artisan, continuing a craft tradition that has existed since photography began.
