Rare and Unseen Photographs of Rolling Stones Found at an LA Flea Market

You just never know what you'll find at your local flea market. Musician Lauren White recently stumbled across a "gold mine" at a flea market in Saugus, California and found a set of of 23 candid rare and unseen photographs of the Rolling Stones captured during their American tour through Savannah, Georgia and Clearwater, Florida in 1965.
"I feel lucky. I really didn't expect to find them at a flea market. Basically, a guy who runs one of the stands called me over because I "looked like I would like rock 'n' roll"—and he was right. I don't know what was lost in translation, however." She told Cool Hunting. "He obviously didn't know what he had. To tell the truth, I didn't either. I obviously knew it was the Stones, but it took about a week of looking them over to realize that this was really a very unique circumstance. After extensive research, I came to find that these are unpublished, never-before-seen photos of one of the most legendary bands in rock 'n' roll history. Not only that, they are beautifully composed, candid, raw and perfect in every way. They really convey a band innocent to their destiny."
The series speaks volumes about an era that saw the birth of rock 'n' roll, and offers a rare glimpse of the band's formative days.
