1963 photo negative of the Beatles developed - 55 years late

Via the Great Yarmouth Mercury:

It was a long and winding road, but a picture of The Beatles playing in Great Yarmouth that had never been seen before has finally been printed - after spending 55 years in a drawer as an undeveloped negative.

Peter Harrison, 75, had salvaged the negative while working in a photographer’s studio in the summer of 1963, when the Fab Four played in the town.

He was 17-years-old at the time and working in Fisher’s photography studio under the ABC Cinema, where The Beatles had already played a concert on June 30 and had returned to the resort for a second show on July 28.

... for 55 years the negative had sat in one of Mr Harrison’s drawers until earlier this month his son completed a black and white photography course.

“I said ‘I’ve got a negative you might be interested in’ so I sent it to him,” Mr Harrison said.
His son, Richard, 43, then developed the negative and printed the photo.
