Rare Beatles photos to go on display

Shots taken during filming of ‘Help!’

A rare collection of photographs of The Beatles are to go on display in Scotland for the first time.

The snaps were taken during the filming of the movie ’Help!’ in 1965 by photographer Michael Peto.

The 500 images were left to the University Of Dundee when Peto died in 1970. They were archived and forgotten about for years until they were rediscovered in 2004.

They are set to be displayed at the University’s Queen Mother Building from May 25 through to July 11.

University archivist Patricia Whatley told the BBC: “Michael Peto’s photographs of The Beatles give us a remarkable behind-the-scenes look at a band which was at the height of its power and fame.”
