The Beatles' 1963 Scottish Tour Contract

During my recent clear out of the archive, I discovered a very poor quality photocopy of the original contract which Albert Bonichi had with Brian Epstein.

It was The Beatles first proper tour under their own name and took place during the worst winter in living memory. The first gig was cancelled and the second scheduled date became their first. It was at The Two Red Shoes in Elgin and that was where I found the photocopy.

It's been extensively cleaned up and is presented here for probably the first time anywhere.
