23 unseen photos of Rolling Stones discovered at flea market

Flea markets are the best thing ever, you never know what you are going to come across. A musician Lauren White, didn’t have a clue  while hunting  for some cool vintage ephemera at her local  flea market in Saugus, California, that she is about to stumble upon a real “gold mine.”

White, found a 23 candid never-before-seen photographs of the Rolling Stones taken in 1965 while the band was enjoying a road trip.

In an interview with Cool Hunting, White states,

“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. 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 After extensive research, I came to find that these are unpublished, never-before-seen photos of one of the most legendary bands in rock ‘n’ roll history.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.”
