Rare pictures of The Beatles meeting youngsters from a children's home while filming A Hard Day's Night in 1964 have been discovered by a children's charity.

Staff at The Children's Society discovered the photographs in an archive which contained a copy of the charity's supporters’ magazine from 1964. It featured an article on children from the Society's now-defunct Roehampton home, Hambro House, meeting the band while they were filming at London's Scala Theatre.

"We were thrilled to discover these photos in The Children’s Society archive, showing The Beatles taking time out from filming A Hard Day’s Night to spend time with children from one of our children’s homes in London," a spokesperson for the charity said. "We no longer run children’s homes but our work supporting disadvantaged children is as important now as it was when those photos were taken 50 years ago."

Last week, Paul McCartney revealed another previously unseen photograph from The Beatles' last ever gig.

The image is one of a number of pictures which were shown on a big screen as McCartney performed live at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park on August 14 at a gig dubbed Farewell To Candlestick: The Final Concert. The venue is the same one The Beatles performed at on August 29, 1966 in what would prove to be their last ticketed public performance together.
