Unlike the uncertainty of the previous section, this is the earliest confirmed (by Mark Lewisohn) date of any early Beatles "performance" photos.
Apparently, this line-up features only two guitarists.

Pictured left to right:
Ritchie Starkey - drums
Frank Walsh - guitar
Roy Trafford - tea-chest bass
John Dougherty - washboard
Eddie Miles (using the name Eddie Clayton) - guitar/vocals
