A front page photo shows Paul McCartney crowning the carnival queen in Northwich, Cheshire, in 1963.
It was taken by photographer Les Goode and featured in Alkali News - an in-house magazine for chemical company ICI.
He sent it off to the Beatles to be autographed, but John Lennon signed it on behalf of all four band members.
'Full of mischief'
He wrote: "All the best from the Beatles" before sending it back to Mr Goode.
