"The actual Eleanor Rigby was born in 1895, lived in Liverpool and worked as a scullery maid. She was married to a man named Thomas Woods and died on October 10, 1939, at age 44. Due to the inspiration of the song, her tombstone has become a popular landmark for Beatles fans visiting Liverpool".
"The title of this song was composed of actress Eleanor Born's name and the name of a store "Rigby and Evens Ltd Wine and Spirit Shippers". The combination sounded pleasant for Paul McCartney, who mostly wrote this song".
So, "Actual Eleanor Rigby" is actually Mrs. Thomas Woods? But in the picture, the gravestone of her husband says his name was John Rigby. So the gravestone is not actual either I take it? Is the photo of her actual? I'm not trying to be difficult lol...just curious.
