    Description

    Rare Photos of Beatles in Dallas with Camera. This set of 23 unpublished b&w 8" x 10" photos was taken by then-16-year-old fan Michael Day during the Beatles' September 18, 1964, visit to Dallas. Day's grandfather worked as a technician for the Associated News, and took his grandson with him to both the press conference and concert at the Dallas Memorial Auditorium. Day was able to speak briefly with Ringo Starr during the conference, and says of the concert: "The noise level from the crowd was so loud that I could feel the floor shaking. There were all different age groups waving their hands and shouting. The excitement was so intense; people were jumping up and down as the Beatles sang." The set includes 16 shots from the band's press conference earlier in the day and seven from their performance that night (including a great photo of screaming Beatlemaniacs in the audience). A large number of Dallas police officers can be seen around the stage, which comes as no surprise since it had been less than a year since the assassination of President Kennedy. Each is in Excellent condition with a very small amount of yellowing along the edges. Also included with the photos are the original negatives, the copyright for these never-before-seen images, the Ricohflex camera Day used to shoot them more than 40 years ago (in Very Fine condition), and a letter of authenticity from Day.
