The Amsterdam canal boat ride
|6. June 1964: The canal boat ride route.|
The canal boat trip in Amsterdam on June 6, 1964 was a stroke of genius, as it allowed thousands of fans a glimpse of the Beatles, as they were passing by in a tourist canal boat with a glass roof. The Beatles were safe, occasional swimmers were fished out of the canals by a police boat who accompanied the Beatles’ vessel.

Created by Piet Schreuders, a chronological montage of all available film footage of the Beatles’ canal trip has now been published, including a few scenes from recently rediscovered Reuters news footage.
