(Gibson) U.S. photographer Mike Mitchell is auctioning his Beatles photo collection at Christie's in July. According to a Reuters report, Mitchell received a press pass to The Beatles' first U.S. concert at the Washington Coliseum in 1964, two days after their historic The Ed Sullivan Show appearance.

"Things were much different back then," he told Reuters. "There was no big security presence, the press wasn't corralled and I was free to sort of embrace my own ambition."

Mitchell was just 18 years of age when he shot the historic photographs. "You cannot forget 8,000 screaming girls," he said. "It was like the birth of my generation." more on this story
