The National Trust also owns the home where Paul McCartney grew up. Paul's family moved into the house in 1955 with his mother and father (James and Mary) and brother Mike. Paul was 13 at the time. Jim was a trumpet player and pianist who led Jim Mac's Jazz Band in the 1920s and encouraged his sons' musical abilities.
The woman in the red dress is Sylvia Hall, and she hosts the tours of the home. The four people posing were a part of our tour. This house is called a "council house" because it was built by the Liverpool government in the 1950s to replace housing destroyed in World War II. Council houses were rented to families such as the McCartneys.
Paul's bedroom was directly above the front door and there are stories of him sneaking in using the front door overhang.Notice the strange condition of the bricks around the door. People have chipped of pieces as momentos.
