A large original Evening Standard Poster from 1964 featuring Maureen Cleave.
Maureen Cleave interviewed Lennon for The Standard later (4/03/66) when he made the infamous comments about The Beatles being more popular than Jesus which caused so much trouble once syndicated across to America.
On this poster the skyscrapers of New York are in the background so it must be just after Feb 64 the first Invasion
In the Maysles Dvd documentary The First US Visit Maureen Cleave can be heard on the phone talking to the Beatles in their Hotel room.
She also has a connection to the John Lennon song Norwegian Wood ( This Bird Has Flown )
Size is 29 1/2 x 19 Inches.

I have done a little more research on this poster..... It was Maureen Cleave that spoke to The Standards Editor about flying over to New York to follow The Beatles on their 1st tour of the USA .The Editor thought it was a bit like taking coals to Newcastle + they would be poorly received ! Never the less he agreed to Cleave joining them.
Whilst in New York with The Beatles Maureen Cleave received a phone call from the Standards Editor that all these Posters with The Beatles on were disappearing from the Advertising Hoardings !
