Rare Beatles Holiday Photos For Sale

2/26/2012 4:30pm EST


Previously unseen pictures of the Beatles on holiday taken by an 11-year-old schoolboy are set to be sold at auction.

The musicians were snapped relaxing at a hotel in the British seaside resort of Weston-Super-Mare in 1963, just weeks after they scored their first U.K. number one single with "Please Please Me".

The photographer was Bruce Leak, then 11, who was on a family holiday with his parents at the time.

The pictures show the stars sunbathing, relaxing on deckchairs and having afternoon tea at the hotel.

Leak's sister, Ann O’Neill, 73, inherited the snaps after her brother's death last year and has now put them up for sale.

They will go under the hammer at Omega Auctions in Stockport, England on Sunday.
