A Miami Beach home that hosted the Beatles for a few days in February 1964, and provided the backdrop for an iconic photo shoot in the home’s pool, is up for demolition.
The possibility of demolition has some people in South Florida reminiscing and others raising the topic of “historic preservation.” Such a designation would save the home from the wrecking ball. But the current owner has to give the go-ahead for such a move. So far, he hasn’t.
During their stay at the home, Life magazine nabbed the four lads from Liverpool for a photo shoot at the house on North Bay Road.
Loegard recalls that it was his idea to put John, Paul, George and Ringo in the pool. But the pool wasn’t heated and the water was very cold.
“So, in the end, it was a very quick shoot in a private pool, with the Beatles shivering and singing in the water before jumping out. My impression of these guys was that they were like four high school kids. You know, they had beards, sort of — like when you first start having to shave, but aren’t quite sure how to do it.”
Let’s hope the owner can work out some kind of deal with those pushing for preservation of the home.
