Essay by 10-year-old Paul McCartney found in library

An essay about the Queen of England’s coronation, written by Sir Paul McCartney (of Beatles fame) when he was 10, has been found after lying undiscovered in Liverpool’s Central Library for over 50 years.

Thought to be one of the earliest surviving written works by Sir Paul, the essay gave him an early taste of appearing in public.

Liverpool’s Lord Mayor presented him with the prize – despite the work having been marked down for grammatical errors.

McCartney’s neat writing has the same curly ends on capital letters which he used later on the “B” of “Beatles” on the group’s drum skin.
