Beatles Mystery Solved

Who was the real Eleanor Rigby, the lonely woman “wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door”? Paul McCartney, author of the 1966 hit, has always said people would never find out who was the original inspiration for the Beatles song and even hinted that the song could just as easily have been called Daisy Hawkins. But a document going up for auction later this month in London gives a hint to Rigby’s identity, The Independent reports. The page, from a log kept by the Corporation of Liverpool, shows wage pages in 1911 to one “E. Rigby,” a scullery maid. It’s expected to fetch up to $750,000 at auction.
