Celebrate The Beatles’ 1964 Visit to Bel Air!
“L.A. Was A Mind Blower” – Ringo Starr
When you’re the most famous band on the planet, days off are so rare. So when The Beatles settled into Bel Air, California, for a little R&R on August 23 and 24, 1964, they really let their hair down. Bob Bonis captured superb and delightful photographs, showing the Fab Four soaking up some sun… and some silliness. Now, 51 years later, the boys are back for pool time in Bel Air as the Bob Bonis Archive releases these intimate, rare and collectible photographs to the public in limited editions to celebrate the occasion.
