    Beatles Nine Original Black-and-White Negatives With Prints and Copyright/Exploitation Rights Assignment (Germany, 1966). Each negative measures approximately 1.5" x 1.5". The images were taken by noted German photographer Günter Zint at the Ernst-Merck-Halle in Hamburg, Germany in 1966. The images capture the boys playing onstage and at a press conference either before or after the concert. The images were likely taken June 26, 1966 when the Beatles returned to Hamburg to perform for the first time since January 1, 1963, when they ended their residency at the Star-Club. The images offer excellent close-ups of John and George's guitars. The negatives are accompanied by nine 12" x 16" black-and-white handcrafted silver gelatin prints of the images produced by Grauwert, Hamburg. There is some modest curling to the paper of the prints, otherwise all examples are in excellent condition. The Ulf Krüger Archive, Hamburg.
