Sunroom: summer 1967 - a Beatle visit (or visits?).

First off - once again, thank you to Joe Baiardi for these. This looks like George and Ringo visiting John in the summer of 1967. But is that George? Or just a random hippy?


  1. I think it's George (same hair and tache that he had at the time) but then again it could be someone else. And these pictures are certainly not dull - as a Beatle fan and a lover of the looks of this era, I think that these candid photos are nothing short of amazing (1967 sort of becomes more "real")! I've never seen any of them before and I'm always looking for more.

    Thanks for the great blog,

    Sakari from Finland

  2. Thanks for the kind words. I agree - I think the pics are beautiful. I just meant that most of my friends think I am nuts! They may be right objectively. But sod objectivity, I say... :)

  3. Well this is a bit of a guilty pleasure for me as well, The Beatles isn't exactly the hippest band to dig. Nevertheless, I keep checking the Beatlepics blog in my spare time, of which most contributors seem to be teenaged American girls ;-) S

  4. Nah, the Beatles are hip - it's everyone else who isn't...
