A piece of the Beatles' history is back in its rightful place


THE BEATLES: (Singing) Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes.


Good morning. I'm A Martínez. A piece of the Beatles' history is back in its rightful place. A Penny Lane street sign stolen by students in 1976 has been returned to Liverpool, England. The sign went missing nine years after the Beatles' song made the road legendary. One of the ex-students contacted The Beatles Story museum earlier this year, wanting to return the sign (singing) there beneath the blue suburban skies. Sorry, Sir Paul.
