I recently came into contact with someone that had some old Queen photos that were given to them by a professional photographer in the 1980's. He doesn't remember who the photographer was or really much info at all about the photos.

When he brought the photos in to show me, he placed them in an empty CD case but also brought along an empty orange binder, with the old Queen logo printed on the front. The binder had four stitched in plastic sleeves, each with four slots to place, presumably photos. It just so happened that there were a total of 16 slots (4 per page and 4 pages) and 16 photos, though he didn't have any memory of the photos ever being in the binder.

All the photos were printed on Kodak Professional paper (printed on the reverse) and aside for one, from 1982, where Freddie was wearing the feather boa, they were mainly Jazz era pics and a few c. 1977. They were all the same size (small) aside from one that was a bit shorter than the rest. They all did fit inside the empty plastic sleeves, though some needed to be moved around from the inner sleeve to the outer sleeve to get them to fit.

I'm just wondering if anyone knows anything about these photos or the binder, as I've never seen them before.

You can see some pics I took here:
