London, Nov 26 (ANI): The discovery of a mouldy schoolbook owned by Eleanor Rigby, who had inspired the classic Beatles song, is set to bring its finder good luck, as it is said to be worth 15,000 pounds.

Rigby, who had lived in the early 1900s, had signed the geography text that was found in a coal shed at her Liverpool home, Eleanor Rigby Whitfield.

The Beatles are believed to have got inspiration for their 1966 hit, about a woman to whose funeral nobody came, from Rigbys grave.

Alice Bennett, who now owns the house, discovered the book.

Its a piece of history, the Sun quoted her as saying. (ANI)
