When the Beatles came to Atlantic City, New Jersey on August 30, 1964, they were set to do their press conference. The conference was set to take place at the Conventional Hall, where the Beatles were performing that night. There was a lack of proper security from the hotel to the hall and Ringo was almost hurt by fans. But they did make it in one piece to the Convention Hall for the press conference. The press conference only lasted 15 minutes (most press conferences lasted 30 minutes) and only about 70 people were allowed inside. One of those people allowed inside the quick press conference was the father of Cameron Cloutier who was working as a reporter at the time. He took some great photographs of our favorite fabs. These photos remained unseen until his wife pulled them out of storage a few years ago. Cameron published them on his blog, Obnixious and Anonymous.
In doing research for this topic this past year, I discovered the photos and contacted Cameron and asked him if I could share his photos with all of you and he kindly agreed!!! So I hope you all enjoy these amazing photographs as much as I do. A big thank you to Cameron for sharing this great photos with the Beatles community.
