Beatles pics to go under the hammer

Washington: Photographs of the Beatles taken by a devoted fan who regularly visited their homes in the mid-1960s are set to be auctioned at Cameo Auctioneers in Reading, England, on August 3.

Sue Baker was a teenager when she used to visit the Beatles between 1965 and 1967.

The 59-year-old grandmother said that John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr were always willing to pose for pictures.

“They would always answer the doors and speak with us. I remember John saying that if it weren’t for people like me he wouldn’t live in such a nice house,” CBS News quoted her as telling the Britain’s Telegraph.

"He asked if we visited the others and I said we didn’t know where they lived. So he gave us their addresses and we started to visit them. Ringo and John lived up the road from each other in Weybridge and George lived in Esher.

"I just hope someone gets enjoyment out of them. They bring back great memories for me," she added.
