Rare photos: Beatles in Detroit for the last time

National Public Radio's online The Picture Show regularly has great eye-candy for fans of photography, in particular, and all things visual. Today, the blog clues us in on The Lost Beatles Photographs: The Bob Bonis Archive, 1964-1966 by Larry Marion. Seems Bonis was a Fab Four tour manager who snapped pics like crazy. But not wanting to exploit his position, Bonis kept the pictures out of circulation beyond family and friends. Now a son, Alex, has decided to take them public, hence the book  being released by HarperCollins ($29.99). Of particular interest here, the selection at The Picture Show includes two shots of the Beatles' final show in Detroit at Olympia on Aug. 13, 1966.
