Flash bulb fan photo

Photo by Dana Crick


The Kansas City Star online has posted some Beatles memories and photos, including this amazing photo.   Here is what the fan who snapped it had to say about the photo:

In 1964 I was 12 years old and completely captivated by The Beatles. My step father, Paul Sunderland, who was 68 years old at the time, took me and my brother and sister to see the Beatles at Municipal Stadium. We had excellent ground level seats but, my clearest memory is that it was nearly impossible to hear the music over the screaming and shrieking of other young girls. Most members of the audience were standing on their seats, and being small for my age it was difficult to see. I did manage to shoot the two attached photographs with my Kodak Instamatic. In spite of the obstacles it was an absolute thrill to be in the presence of the The Beatles!”DANA CRICK

Most fan taken photos either did not turn out, were blurry, were too far away, or had fans blocking the way.   This photo is a true treat!
