NEW YORK (CBS) A collection of photographs of members of the Beatles taken by a teenager in the 1960s will be up for auction in England next month.

Sue Baker snapped pictures of George Harrison, John Lennon and Ringo Starr at their homes after she was given their addresses by Paul McCartney.

Her photograph collection, together with the envelope on which McCartney wrote his bandmates' addresses, is expected to sell for thousands, according to reports.

The sale is being conducted by Cameo Auctioneers in Reading, England, and is scheduled for Aug. 3.

"This is a wonderful collection of unseen photographs and memorabilia," Alan Pritchard, of Cameo Auctioneers, told Britain's Telegraph on Wednesday. "There are a lot of Beatles fans across the world and I'm sure they'd all love this unique archive."

"Already there has been a lot of interest as there always is with good Beatles memorabilia," he added.

Baker's visits took place between 1965 and 1967, and she recalled that the stars were always willing to pose for photos.

"They would always answer the doors and speak with us," Baker, now a 59-year-old grandmother, told the Telegraph. "I remember John saying that if it weren't for people like me he wouldn't live in such a nice house."
