If you like your Beatles rare, this is your week. A collection of photos taken by a 16-year old Paul Berriff for the Yorkshire Evening Post are now on display at the Beatles Story Museum in Liverpool. The negatives sat in his attic for nearly half a century before being discovered earlier this year.
The pictures were taken in 1963 and 1964, during the Beatles first national tour of Britain as the opening act for Helen Shapiro. Paul Beriff speaks briefly about the find in the video below, which features shots of many of the photos. ~ via BBC
Stateside, MSG has released some never-before-seen concert photos of John, Paul, George, and Ringo as solo artists here.
