Indeed, this set documents the first known color photos of the band
with the name "The Beatles". There is, of course, the famous color
photo of George, John and Paul as The Quarry Men taken at Paul's
Auntie Jin's in 1958, a color photo of Ringo with Rory Storm and
The Hurricanes in 1960 and the color film of The Beatles from
Floral Hall on 20 February 1962.
