In 1962 Brian Epstein commissioned The Peter Kaye Studio to Photograph the Beatles. His brief was ''To provide Photographs that would match the unique Beatles sound'' He took the resulting Pictures and the Demo tapes he had made to London...the rest is history.
Those Photographs were to become the most famous pictures of the early Beatles. They were unique in many ways, being perhaps the first ever ''outdoor location'' pictures of any major British pop group.
Before the historically valuable negatives were obtained by Apple corps. for their collection, the Studio gathered together a selection of the best pictures, (some of them never before seen) and Published them in Book form called ''The Beatles in Liverpool''. Only 5,000 copies of the book were ever printed, and many have been dispatched to eager Beatles fans all over the world.
There are over 130 original Photographs in the book, linked by a charming narrative which tells the story of how the Studio played an important part in the Mersey Beat scene in the 1960''s. Some examples from the book are shown below.
All Photographs included in the book, were taken by Les Chadwick
