Wizard of Oz photos sell for a pot of gold! - Behind the scenes snaps sell for a whopping £55,000...over 10 times the estimate.<br />
<br />
Left picture depicts Judy Garland as Dorothy Gale, Ray Bolger as The Scarecrow, Jack Haley as The Tin Man, and Bert Lahr as The Cowardly Lion.  Picture on the right depicts a crowd of extras on the set of Emerald City.<br />

Amazing never before seen photos taken during the filming of The Wizard of Oz have come to light 80 years later.<br />
<br />
The black and white snaps were taken during the scene where the 'Horse of a Different Colour' enters Emerald City.<br />
<br />
In one photo, Dorothy, The Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion can be seen perched in a carriage.<br />

Another shows a crowd of extras in the background on the Emerald City set - and there is also a close up picture of the coachman, played by Frank Morgan who was also the Wizard of Oz.
