Man claims spot in Ringo Starr photo

WOODLAND PARK, N.J. — Ringo Starr’s search for six teenagers who he photographed during the Beatles first trip to America in 1964 may be over.

A California man says they’re six students from Fair Lawn High School in New Jersey.

Starr had guessed he snapped the photo, which appears in his new book “Photograph,” in Miami.

But Charlie Schwartz tells The Record newspaper he and five classmates were turned away after going to Kennedy Airport to see the Fab Four. Schwartz says they were returning home on a New York highway when they saw a limousine next to them and the Beatles inside.

Schwartz says Ringo rolled down the window and started snapping pictures.

The retired bartender says the whole thing seems surreal.
