Rare photos of The Beatles that will be featured in a book titled “Some Fun Tonight” which will be released February 7, 2014.
The photos were taken in Los Angeles, during a break in their final tour in August 1966. (Although the photo of John certainly doesn’t look like ‘66).

The little girl was five year old Debbie Fyall and her father was a London Daily Express reporter following the Beatles on their first trip to America.
Excerpt from the Daily News, January 25, 2004 By Brian Harmon:
“I was a little scared because I couldn’t see my parents,” said Debbie, as she recalled that moment 40 years ago. “I saw the sea of camera lenses in front of me. Then I looked over and saw my father, who said, ‘It’s okay, I’m here.’”
Debbie, now 45, was tracked down this week by the Daily News when Capitol Records and Apple Corps Ltd. announced a search for her and other New Yorkers pictured during the Beatles’ first U.S. visit, in 1964.
A framed photo that captured what Debbie calls her “10 seconds of fame” hangs prominently in the kitchen of the home she shares with her husband and 8-year-old daughter in Alexandria, Virginia.
“I remember my parents in the morning saying, ‘Get dressed. We’re going to see the Beatles.’ And I didn’t really know what that meant. I remember John Lennon asking me my name and how old I was. He hoisted me up onto his shoulders. I was the only kid around at that point.”
“It’s always been a big part of my life. It’s been a great conversation piece,” she said of the picture. “People often do a double-take when they see it and say, ‘Is that really you?’”
