Beatles snaps sell at auction for £3,750


Beatles autographs and pictures are went under the hammer at Eastbourne Auction Rooms on Thursday (May 7).

The four black and white images of the Beatles recording Within You Without You in 1967 were taken by a small camera of the man who was driving Indian musician Amrat Gajjar to the recording studios. They were sold with full copyright.

The lot included a small leather note book with the signatures of the Beatles, although Ringo didn’t sign.

It had a guide price of between £2,000 and £3,000 but the hammer went down at £3.750.

Jeannette May, senior valuer at Eastbourne Auction Rooms, said there had been a great deal of interest in the item and they were expecting bids from America.

The photos and autographs of the Beatles were listed as Lot 381 in the two-day Fine Art, Antiques and Collectables Sale which took place on Thursday and Friday of last week in the Eastbourne sale room in Finmere Road.
