    Default Unique photos of the Beatles in the summer of 1963 before worldwide fame

    Four weeks later their lives were to change forever.

    But in this photograph the Beatles can still enjoy a quiet few hours sunbathing without, it appears, a care in the world - or being swamped by fans.
    It was taken in July 1963 during a week when the group had packed out the Odeon cinema in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset. Scroll down for more...

    The band had already had three top ten hits - Love Me Do, Please Please Me and From Me To You.
    But it was to be August of that year, when She Loves You shot straight to number one, that saw Beatlemania unleashed and the transformation of the four young Liverpudlians into global stars. Scroll down for more...

    In the calm before the storm, the band was captured in a scene typical of an English resort of that era.
    The lack of response to their presence from the holiday crowds can be judged by the dozing sunbather in the picture who lies there in his underpants without a flicker of interest in the soon-to-be superstars. Scroll down for more...

    The unknown photographer who took this shot was persuaded to part with the copyright-by Beatles publicist Tony Barrow.
    The picture has remained unseen since.
    Mr Barrow, who worked with the group between 1963 and 1968, said: "This is before the pressures of the Beatles got to them, they are not putting anything on for the camera. Scroll down for more...

    "They just wouldn't be able to do this again in a month's time, there's a real innocence here." The picture is from a collection Mr Barrow aims to publish in a book about the Beatles.
