Photographs of the Beatles featured at the SF Art Exchange

Has it been almost fifty years since the Beatles landed in America and started a decade or more of world wide hysteria over them? I remember all the newsreels of the screaming fans, the idiotic attempts to get close to the Fab Four and the news frenzy. Before there was Diana, there were the Beatles and I guess for some, the obsessive interest has never stopped.

Previously unseen photographs of the Beatles are on display at the San Francisco Art Exchange. Taken by photographer Paul Berriff, this is the show's US gallery debut. The photographs - taken between 1963 and 1964 - offer a fascinating glimpse of the Beatles before they became superstars.
