I had so much fun looking through this collection of then-and-now Beatles photographs. First of all, I love the Beatles. Second, I've always wanted to visit London and third, tracking down these spots is totally something nerdy Tom and I would do. When we were living in LA we visited the diner from the opening scene of Reservoir Dogs ("I don't tip because society says I have to"), sat in a booth at the Quality Cafe where countless scenes have been shot (Old School, Ghost World, Seven, Training Day) and ate possibly the worst grilled cheese and french fries of our lives and on our last trip we sat on the bench from 500 Days of Summer and took photos (speaking of which, I need to put those on the blog soon).
I like seeing how much these spots have changed (or haven't changed as the case may be) in the years since the Beatles walked the streets of London. I hope to one day visit and see some of these place for myself. Also in the list is finding places where The Smith had their photos taken in Manchester!
