Marion V & John Lennon - 1964 - "and I saw her standing there.."

photo taken of my sister Marion(15) & John Lennon (23) Amsterdam June 06-1964. Before their performances on June 6th, the group climbed aboard the Royal Yacht, taking a boating tour of Amsterdam's canals. The shores and bridges were swarming with Beatlemaniacs -- the more out of control fans jumping into the canals and swimming towards the boat that carried the Beatles. John and Paul attempted to physically protect a few of the fans from the Amsterdam police,. As the craft passed under bridges, the Beatles were showered with gifts from the fans above. Due to the crowds and general chaos, the Beatles arrived late for the first of their two shows in Blokker at Veilinghal where they performed amongst other songs- "I saw here standing there"
