Beatles Photographs at Christie's
JULY 16, 2011
Almost half a century later, nearly 50 never-before-seen Beatles photographs, including images of the band's first-ever U.S. concert, will be auctioned at Christie's on Wednesday, with a presale estimate of $100,000. The black-and-white photographs feature a sweating and joyful Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr bouncing at the drums and a policeman using bullets as earplugs to block the screams from more than 8,000 fans. The priciest photographs are expected to sell for $4,000 to $6,000 each.
