Unseen Beatles pictures discovered 30 years on

The BeatlesPreviously unseen photographs of The Beatles are set to be sold at auction after being discovered on an undeveloped roll of film.

Tony Burke was given the images by photographer Derek Cooper when he died in 1983. They were hidden inside cameras that Burke inherited and a span a period of 13 years, right up to The Beatles split in 1970.

Amongst the photos are images of the band recording the video for A Day In The Life in 1967 and appearing on the BBC TV show Jukebox Jury. They are expected to sell for around £2,000 when they are auctioned by Cuttlestones auctioneers in Wolverhampton later this month.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, sale room manager at Cuttlestones Tom Waldron said: “We are honoured to have the opportunity to sell such a rare collection. Due to the band’s massive fame most images of them have been extensively reproduced so when these negatives were originally discovered it was a real treasure trove.”
