On this day, Apple Corps opened their offices at 95 Wigmore Street, in London. From Medium:
[…] Apple’s first office was above the boutique, then shortly afterwards they moved to more permanent, although still temporary, offices at 95 Wigmore Street on January 22. The choice of Marylebone as a location was Paul McCartney’s: he knew the area well from living for several years in Wimpole Street in the house of his then girlfriend Jane Asher. Apple’s appointed A&R man, Peter Asher, also lived there in Weymouth Street, so it was convenient for both of them. […]From Why The Beatles Created Apple Music | by Barry Miles | Cuepoint | Medium
