Beatles Pics Display In Liverpool

by | 30 July 2007

Pictures of the Beatles during their heyday are to go on display for the first time in Liverpool's National Conservation Centre.

The shots of the Fab Four were taken during the filming of the Beatles film Help in 1965.

Entitled Now These Days Are Gone, the exhibition contains black and white pictures of the band in a number of settings – in the studio, at home and relaxing between takes.

The photographs were taken by Michael Peto, a 20th century photojournalist who left 130,000 photographs to the University of Dundee when he died in 1970. These were then archived and forgotten until their rediscovery in 2004.

Fiona Philpott, director of exhibition at National Museums Liverpool, said: "We are delighted at having this opportunity to bring some rarely seen images of the Beatles to Liverpool.

"For fans of the Fab Four there is the chance to see the stars in a relaxed and informal setting while those interested in photography can admire the work of Michael Peto, one of the great photojournalists of the 60s."

The exhibition runs from August 18th to March 2nd 2008.
