A rare find in a recent acquisition

Posted 6/8/2018

Here are some photos from an album with movie and TV stars from the middle 1900's.  Also there is a ticket from a Beatles concert in 1966 in Washington D.C.  The ticket cost $5!  Included with this was an envelop marked "Beatles" that contained a dried flower - possibly an orchid.  We are not sure of the connection, but our imaginations can come up with some interesting possibilities.  Was it thrown from the stage by John Lennon?  Was it given to her by her date?  Was it used as a stage prop?
