In September 1963, during a rare break between touring and recording, George Harrison paid a visit to his sister, Louise, who was now living in Benton, Illinois, as well as taking in a flying visit to NYC. 

Five months before The Beatles’ explosive appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show, George, in full Beatle suit, could mingle blissfully anonymous among Americans on his sight-seeing trip. He is captured in photos taken by his brother Peter on the viewing platform on the Empire State building, and the roof deck of the Pickwick Arms Hotel in Manhatten.

Today, near the interstate exit-ramp, there’s a large cut-out of George next to the road into Breton, celebrating his visit.

I’ve seen a lot of pictures from The Beatles Mad Day Out (July 28, 1968), but this is definitely one of the maddest. Is Ringo wearing a BOOT on his head?
