John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr are featured as white silhouettes fixed to a brick wall.

Under the figures is the lyric: “Òhe love you take is equal to the love you make”, the last line of the Abby Road song The End.

Vladimir Popov, president of the local Urals Beatles Club, said the band “is depicted on stage because that is their natural state, and that is how many remember them.”

Band member Rod Davis told the crowd of Beatles fans that the area even had some of the Merseyside atmosphere.

This river is smaller than the Mersey, which runs through Liverpool. But we noticed that it’s the same color,” he said.

Fellow Quarrymen members John Lowe, Len Garry and Colin Hanton, in Russia for the The Beatles on the Border festival, organized by the Urals Beatles Club, were also at the ceremony.
