Description


Extremely rare pairing of original vintage glossy 10 x 8 contact sheets of the Beatles during a photo session held at Dezo Hoffmann’s studio on Wardour Street in late April 1963. The photos contain a total of 24 uncommon images of the Beatles posing in their trademark collarless suits. The photos are marked in colored felt tip and wax pencil, with the reverse of both featuring a “Dezo Hoffmann Ltd.” copyright stamp. In overall very good to fine condition, with scattered light creasing, and one short edge tear. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks.

Eager to distance the band from their leather-clad past, manager Brian Epstein commissioned Beatles tailor Dougie Millings to create a more refined and modish style for his young Beatles upstarts. Topped with their trademark collarless jackets, the resulting slim-fitting suits were first worn by the Beatles on stage and for television appearances in early 1963. By the time the Beatles played the Ed Sullivan Show on February 9, 1964, and their subsequent first concert on American soil at the Washington Coliseum two days later, the Fab Four and their clean-cut image had sparked an international phenomenon soon to be deemed the British Invasion.
