FROM SILK TO A SONG BOOK WRITTEN BY PHILIP KIRKLAND

Strawberry Field, a former Salvation Army children's home in the Liverpool suburb of Woolton, achieved worldwide fame in 1967 with the release of The Beatles' single 'Strawberry Fields Forever', written by John Lennon. The history of the site, and the house that stood on it, is also a history of four wealthy and influential families, each having a hand in shaping the city in some way. Although three of those families have often been mentioned in potted histories of Strawberry Field, for the first time, Beatles' historian, Philip Kirkland, has filled in the details of their lives, their works, and their connection with the famous house in Beaconsfield Road, unearthing hitherto unknown facts and even discovering a "new" and hugely important character. FROM SILK TO A SONG is the most complete history ever written of one of Liverpool's most famous landmarks and is required reading for both those who are interested in the history of the city, and of course, for all of the many Beatles' fans who are looking for ever more background information about their favourite group.
