An exhibition of Beatles photographs that have never been seen in Liverpool will go on display at the National Conservation Centre from 18 August until 2 March 2008. Now These Days Are Gone features photographs by Michael Peto, all of which were taken during the filming of the Beatles film Help in 1965.

The collection of intimate black and white photographs show the Beatles in a variety of settings such as at home, in the studio, relaxing between takes and joking on set. Fiona Philpott, Director of Exhibition at National Museums Liverpool says, ‘We are delighted at having this opportunity to bring some rarely seen images of the Beatles to Liverpool. For fans of the fab four there is the chance to see the stars in a relaxed and informal setting while those interested in photography can admire the work of Michael Peto, one of the great photo-journalists of the 60s’.

Michael Peto left 130,000 photographs to the University of Dundee when he died in 1970. They were then archived and lay forgotten until their rediscovery in 2004.
