    by ODN


    Recently discovered photographs of The Beatles before Beatlemania took over have gone on display at Liverpool's Beatle Story.

    The black and white pictures were taken by photographer Paul Berriff during a tour in 1963 and 1964.

    They lay untouched for almost 50 years before he found them in his attic.

    Berriff was 16 years old at the time and working as an editorial assistant on the Yorkshire Evening Post.

    "I started to root round in my attic and I found this box of about 800 negs," Paul Berriff said.

    "I was absolutely knocked out when I saw the quality and realised I should do something with them."

    The 38 pictures show The Beatles both on and off stage including relaxing in their dressing room.

    The photographs will go on permanent display at The Beatles Story at Liverpool's Albert Dock from 24 August, 2010, entry to the gallery will be free.
