Footnotes

  • Provenance: This lot is from the archives of a former photographic agency. Started as a hobby in the late 50s/early 60s, it became a profession around the time of the pop music explosion in 1963/4. It grew in strength when incorporated, as a London-based international agency, in 1971, selling the rights in images all over the world, from China to Brazil. Its photographers compiled an extensive record of the various musical phenomena of the decades, from the jazz and skiffle of the late 50s, through to the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and other leading groups of the 60s, to the likes of the Police and Punk/New Wave in the '70s.
