Scan - George Harrison and some of the presents that arrived along with thousands of cards, contained in 52 sacks of mail delivered to the EMI headquarters at Manchester Square, London, for his 21st birthday, 25 February 1964
His parents received two van-loads full of presents and cards back home in Liverpool for George as well, according to The Beatles Files. Speaking of presents: those two van-loads were “crammed with teddy bears, records, razors, socks, shirts, hair brushes, shampoo by the gallon, and untold boxes of jelly babies. One fan even sent a full-sized door which George was supposed to unlock with of his hundreds of twenty-first ceremonial keys.”
George’s mother is quoted by The Beatles Files: “I telephoned him to wish him a happy birthday soon after midnight, at the hour at which he was born. We sang to each other and had a good laugh.”
George spent the day at EMI Studios, Abbey Road, recording with the band.
"On George’s twenty-first birthday, nearly one million cards, letters and gifts arrived at the Harrison house […] - seven truckloads of post that filled the entry of their home for weeks. It was, according to the post office, the most mail ever delivered to one address outside the royal family."- Here Comes The Sun by Joshua M. Greene
