The Beatles’ unseen photos in their first US concert were sold for more than $360,000 (£223,600) at Christie’s auction house in New York, according to several international reports on Thursday, July 21, 2011.

Apparently, photos such as their concert held in Washington Coliseum on February 11, 1964 were sold individually.

Moreover, it was reported that the images taken by photographer Mike Mitchell at the venue when he was 18 and photos from another Beatles concert brought an estimated total of $100,000 (£62,000).

Reports also said that the backlit photograph of Ringo Starr was included in the sold pictures amounting to $8,125 dollars (£5,000). It showed an unusual moment where Ringo Starr was both drummer and lead singer.

The backlit photograph taken by Mitchell while he was standing directly behind the famous band was another best part and sold for more than $68,000 (£42,000), reports added.
