Lost photographs of The Beatles, taken on the set of the band's debut film A Hard Day's Night, have been rediscovered and will be exhibited and sold at an exhibition in London, England in December. 

The images were taken by Lord Christopher Thynne, colorful son of the 6th Marquess of Bath and former proprietor of the UK's famed Longleat Safari Park. Shot on medium format in the spring of 1964, following the band's first US tour, the photos depict all four members of The Beatles at Les Ambassadeurs Club in Mayfair as well as on the platform at Marylebone Station.
