    Beatles - Four Signed Astrid Kirchherr Photos (1960-62). German photographer Astrid Kirchherr is a name heavily associated with the Fab Four, as she met them shortly after their arrival in Hamburg in August, 1960. Here are four of her glossy 7" x 9.5" black & white photos from the early days of the Beatles. Two of these rare shots depict John Lennon - one a full body shot of Lennon dressed in a coat and boots, the other a close up of John's face - while another is an artistic double-exposure of early Beatles bassist Stuart Sutcliffe, with the final photo an image of Klaus Voorman, a close friend of Astrid's. All photos autographed by Kirchherr in pencil on the verso, with the Sutcliffe photo sporting an extra Kirchherr signature on the front in Sharpie! Excellent. COA from Heritage Auctions.
