Rarely seen photographs of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones in the 1960s have been discovered in a box that lay unopened for 25 years. Husband and wife Stan and Betty Mallett, from Exeter, took the photographs whenever famous names visited Devon. The collection includes images of The Beatles, the Rolling Stones and Billy Fury. Mr Mallett lived off his income from a job as an accountant and his wife was an RAC patrolwoman – but the couple worked together on their sideline business Photography by Mallett. The husband and wife team captured the great music high of the 1960s and dealt with publicity in and around the Exeter area, including the ABC, The Theatre Royal, Gaumont Exeter and the Odeon. Their son Frank, 68, who now lives in Essex, revealed his brother Steve found 500 images taken between 1961 and 1964 in an old box while looking for documents for the family tree.
