World-famous Photographs of the Beatles, by Tom Murray, featuring the Nowhere Man
Tom Murray’s fantastic collection of photographs from the Beatles' Mad Day Out have become an incredible piece of musical history.
Capturing the Fab Four around London in the summer of 1968, Tom spent a day with Paul, John, Ringo and George to produce the iconic imagery.
Tom has since been a fantastic supporter of the Ultimate Charity Auction and so many other causes.
We are delighted to offer a photographic collection from that day—the first time Tom has offered this particular selection as a set.
Included in the imagery is a photo entitled "Nowhere Man," which captures a gentleman asleep on a bench, unaware that he is surrounded by—and then photographed with—the Beatles.
Other photos in the set are "Martha My Dear," "Flower Power 2," "Ready, Steady, Go" and "Untitled 2."
The photos all have a white border and measure 29 cms x 29 cms (11.5 x 11.5 ins).
These photographs are considered by experts to be the very best colour images from that day.
Kindly donated by Tom Murray.
The Ultimate Charity Auction was launched in 2012 to provide an online fundraising platform to support national and local charities. Thanks to the incredible generosity of donors, the auction hosts a glittering array of money-can’t-buy items from the world of sport, celebrity and lifestyle.
The online nature of the auction means it is 100% transparent, and this year it will raise money for the GeeWizz charitable foundation and the League Manager Association Charity—In The Game.
GeeWizz was set up by veteran fundraiser and charity campaigner, Gina Long MBE, to create a platform to purchase much-needed equipment, helping two specific groups—children with disabilities and those who are affected by cancer, either directly or indirectly, or those carrying out research into the disease especially sarcoma and breast cancer. Of every £1 raised and donated to the charity, 91.5p goes directly to supporting these families.
The LMA aims to increase funding, remit and visibility of the LMA charity and increase its contribution to the wider community. The charity is an integral part of the LMA’s commitment to helping former, current and future members and their families who have fallen on difficult times or find themselves in need of specialist care, advice or assistance.
In particular, this year’s Ultimate Charity Auction will help support projects around mental health in sport.
