Penny Lane

In the movie Yesterday, Jack also visits Penny Lane, a street in Liverpool. Paul McCartney and John Lennon decided to write songs about their childhoods, and while John came up with the nonsense song "Strawberry Fields Forever," which has nothing to do with the childrens' home, Paul wrote the nostalgic "Penny Lane." The song is a tribute to several spots and people familiar to Paul. The song begins: "In Penny Lane, there is a barber showing photographs of every head he’s had the pleasure to know." In the photo you'll see the Tony Slavin Barbershop on Penny Lane. Also, every morning, Paul and George Harrison passed Penny Lane on their way to school on the bus.
