Kenwood 1965: fan photos.

These are the earliest known photos of John at Kenwood, ca. 1965. Taken near the front door by fans on an autograph expedition, this area is also, possibly, where the Rubber Soul sleeve was shot.


  1. What a fabulous website. To everyone involved in bringing this together, thanks very much. Imagine 52 years on & still getting fresh glimpses into the lives of the Boys. Simply fascinating period pics as well as DEEP insight into the minds of 25 year old musicians who were experiencing the wave first-hand that was sweeping the world over. The Kenwood pictures are absolutely brilliant. Through the sheer volume of the pictures from various angles, I sense the vibe growing up there (vs. in LA in '65 - '67 which is where I was as an eight - 10 year old rascal!). It's all too easy to forget the guys were young men with their ever-growing personal lives filling their time & not just the iconic figures we all saw on the 'tele'.

    Very, very cool!
