    Tim i know that Picture since 34 Years it was in s/w in a old GDR Music Magazine

    it must be 1963 Cavern Club

    Looks like a Vox Mando-bass behind Paul’s head.

    I think they had stopped playing the Cavern by this time.

    Did they ever wear suits at The Cavern?

    I have a poster of this photo that I got back in the 70s. This is the only time I’ve ever seen this photo again…

    My guess is it’s from the Autumn tour ’63 (Oct-Nov). Peter Jay & The Jaywalkers were one of the support acts and used white Vox instruments particularly the Mark V bass http://www.jaywalking.co.uk/uploads/1/1/0/4/11043804/3126789_orig.jpg

    Definitely NOT the Cavern. As Philalban has correctly identified it’s backstage on the Nov-Dec ’63 UK tour but unsure of the cinema.
