Default Possibly rare poster???

I have acquired a poster at a swap meat the other day. It is fairy old and battered around the edges- but I have never seen this photograph before.

On the poster are youngsters John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison. (Ringo isnt even there- thats how early the photo is). The three are standing next to a sleek looking car in a wooded area.

At the bottom of the poster, there are only the words "Mike McCartney Associates". Mike is Paul's brother- who is a photographer.

I am unable to find this poster ANYWHERE online. I am wondering if anyone has seen the photo before and can direct me towards more information on it.

Here is the photograph-

yeah, considering the fact that I cant find it anywhere else on the internet makes it a "rare bird".
I'm going to frame this one.

I purhcased this for $20 at a flea market. I figured it was pretty unique, so I took it. I wonder how much it really is though..

Perhaps the license plate can help us date it? Style, letter vs number position? I read somewhere a while back that plates in the UK evolved over the years. Some starting with numbers some with letters, such as LMW 28IF etc.

EDIT - MP was a Middlesex prefix until 1965, when it switched to a "Greater London" mark, and PF is Surrey... Not sure which one we are dealing with here.

Wait, there's a really similar picture with all 4 Beatles in it. Maybe Ringo was off in the woods for this shot. Lemme find it...

Thankyou for that link. Now we at least know who the photographers were- It was Mike McCartney.

Ringo joined in august of '62. In the references, he isnt in any of the other photos. I dont think he has joined just yet

According to Savage Young Beatles, the photos were taken at Woolton Golf Course.

If you look in the background on the left it looks like someone is playing golf so the golf course would seem correct.
Lennon in particular looks quite young.I'd go for Mike McCartney as the photographer.
Anybody know the make of the car?

Incidentally the number plate says MPF .
Could be McCartney Paul's Funeral.
So maybe he was already dead!
