Kenwood: from above part 2. 2009.



Interesting (or not) to compare these with the Lennon-era aerial photos. Note the swimming pool has been re-built and is now in a different position. This happened in the mid-1990s. John's mural in the pool, however, was removed in the '80s by a Swedish businessman who owned Kenwood at the time. It was generously donated to the Liverpool Year of Culture exhibition, and then, typically, not returned. (Anyone out there got the local tv news item relating to its removal? I used to have it on VHS a long time ago, but sadly it has gone the way of all things....)
