    The son of a Miami photographer found rare pictures of the Beatles, Elvis and Muhammed Ali, tucked away in an unmarked box for decades. (Published Thursday, Aug. 18, 2011)

    A photographer's son found a treasure trove of photos in his late father's storage boxes.

    They are never-seen-before photographs of rock giants like The Beatles, rehearsing for The Ed Sullivan Show or goofing off at Miami beach. There is one of Mohammad Ali with his guard down and Elvis rocking on his toes.

    They are beloved celebrities captured in a way few photographers could ever capture them.

    And now, The Perfect Exposure Gallery in Los Angeles is putting them on display for everyone to see.  But, the negatives for these historic images could have been lost forever.  

    Charlies Trainor was a photographer in Miami from the 50's to the '70's. His son found the photographs in boxes in his father's attic, just before they were about to be discarded.     

    The exhibit will be on display for a month at The Perfect Exposure Gallery in Koreatown on 6th Street.
