Music fans have a new date for their diary. Fifty years to the day that The Beatles played in Huddersfield, rare photographs of the band will go on display.
Trevor Bray, a photographer from Holmfirth, took the black and white photos of the Liverpool group on November 29, 1963, before they performed at the ABC Cinema. Mr Bray died in 2006 aged 76 without knowing the significance of his pictures. It was only in recent years that his daughter, Helen who is also a photographer, decided to do something with them. She said: “We spent the year working on these pictures. “And we thought it was about time they came back home as they have never been on display here.” In 1963 The Beatles were on the verge of stardom – but Mr Bray was only there as he was commissioned to take photographs of the band before they went on stage. He took a mixture of individual and band portraits.
