MOHAI Presents Rarely Seen Beatles Photographs by Timothy Eagan

The Beatles arrived in Seattle on August 21, 1964 to perform a concert of their hits at the Seattle Center Coliseum. Tickets to the concert were $5.00 but a young photographer, Timothy Eagan, managed to get in for free with his camera and was at the edge of the stage to take pictures capturing this historic moment in Seattle’s rock history. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Beatles visit, MOHAI will present nine of the photographs taken at the concert. The images will be on display in MOHAI’s Faye G. Allen Grand Atrium August 15—September 14, 2014.

The photographs are part of a collection of 80 negatives that were recently donated to MOHAI by the photographer’s brother, Mike Eagan. In addition to the photographic pop-up display, twenty seven images from the Timothy Eagan Collection have been added to MOHAI’s on-line photo database and are fully searchable!
