    Description

    "Beatlemania" Silver Gelatin Prints by Ian Wright. A set of six 9.5" x 7.5" b&w silver gelatin prints by Ian Wright, compiled by the photographer to highlight the mania that would often accompany a Beatles concert -- in this case, one at the Spa Theatre in Scarbrough om August 9, 1964. About 30,000 people showed up to great the Fab FOur when they arrived; four police constables where dressed in wigs to act as decoys for the band -- a ruse that almost worked, as there were plenty of savvy fans accustomed to such ploys left to great them at the stage door. The prints are matted to an overall size of 24" x 30" and were printed by Wright from the original negative. The display is signed by Wright and numbered 1 of 1. In Excellent condition.
