Beatles concert - Shea Stadium New York, August 23, 1966 - John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr

$5 bucks to see the show. The best seats were $5.75
These shots were transparencies taken on Kodachrome II, with my old Agfa SLR. (Agfaflex III -it was new in '66).

These are scans of the original slides.
Obviously the quality of these pics leaves a lot to be desired, but I wanted to share with the PBase community and any Beatles fans out there. Enjoy. Tg
