    Description

    Beatles - Group of Eighteen Vintage and Press Photos (1965-66). This assortment of glossy, black and white photographs, ranging in size from 7" x 5" to 12" x 9.5", contain many examples of the group's humorous side including John passing his driver's test while the guys give him a big thumbs up; the boys posing indoors with open umbrellas; John dressed as a lavatory attendant, replete with top hat and white gloves, for BBC 2's sketch comedy show, "Not Only, But Also"; and George posing with a cup on his head in an informal picture taken by Ringo in the Bahamas. Other, more serious examples include a fantastic image of Ringo behind his kit with a cigarette dangling from his lips; the guys holding a press conference, surrounded by members of the media; a crowd of adoring fans; John and Ringo (with their wives) meeting with the prime minister of Tobago; and others. The majority of the photos contain press and studio stamps on the verso and some have short descriptions of the scene. Overall a fantastic collection in Near Fine or better condition. From the Uwe Blaschke Beatles Collection.
