George Harrison's childhood home set for auction in Liverpool

The childhood home of Beatles George Harrison is coming to auction, with big bids expected following the sale of John Lennon's home in 2013.

The house has a guide price of around £150,000 ($257,259) but could see as much as Lennon's house, which made £480,000 ($772,114) after intense competition from Beatles fans.

Situated at 25 Upton Green in Speke, the house was home to George and his family during the early days of the Beatles, and is thought to have been the band's choice for relaxing after shows.

The house as it stands today

However, Harrison had first grown up at 12 Arnold Grove in Wavertree, moving to the Speke house in 1949, aged 6.

He once said of Arnold Grove: "Try and imagine the soul entering the womb of a woman living at 12 Arnold Grove, Wavertree, Liverpool 15. There were all the barrage balloons, and the Germans bombing Liverpool. All that was going on."

"I sat outside the house a couple of years ago, imagining 1943, nipping through the spiritual world, the astral level, getting back into a body in that house. That really is strange when you consider the whole planet, all the planets there may be on a spiritual level. How do I come into that family, in that house at that time, and who am I anyway?"

Paul Fraser Collectibles has a superb selection of Beatles memorabilia for sale.
