Rare photos Take 1

Every now and again I'm going to post some lesser known photos of Syd Barrett and Pink Floyd. This is the first batch of 5. If you have any of these photos in better quality or more complete then please msg me so it can be added to the Syd/Early Floyd Photo & Info DVD-Rom.

Photo 1 is an early publicity shot that was rarely published at the time. Photo 2 is a promotional photo taken for Rotosound guitar strings. Photo 3 I know nothing about, location unknown to me. Photo 4 is taken outside the Albert Hall, London. Anyone know who the other people are? And photo 5 is a mystery, I don't know what this was taken for or have I seen any other photos from this sitting. If you have any more info about any of these pics then please leave a comment. Enjoy!

I think photo 5 could be from the "Piper" cover session! Syd, Richard and Nick appear to be wearing the same garb as on the cover. Roger isn't, plus Syd has parted his hair... otherwise the hair length and clothes matches that session. Either way, it's definitely from the same week or month.

Photo one has a poster for the first UFO gig I believe.

Photo 3 is very interesting as it seems Syd has on the same clothes from the top of the pops photo where they sit cross legged. It may be the same day as they all seem to have on the same clothes except for Nick. Very cool photos Thanks
