Kenwood: Lizzie Bravo.



I, and indeed you, may be a fulsome fan of the Fabs, but we've got nothing on uber-fan Lizzie Bravo. Lizzie came to live in London, on her own, at the age of 15, from Brazil, with the express intention of meeting the Beatles. This she achieved in "reasonable" fashion, eventually being invited in to Abbey Road to sing on the original Across The Universe. Nae bad. Anyway, the good news is she is currently writing a book about her experiences based on her diaries of the time, and has kindly offered to share one or two of her Kenwood photos here.
So, a great shot of Lizzie near the front door holding one of John's cats. Which one, I'm not sure. Here is her diary entry for the day this photo was taken - March 25, 1967. "Me & friends went to Esher and Weybridge. George was in a great mood, he said "Hello, happy Easter!". Pattie is an angel. I fell in love with John's black and white cat. We didn't see John, though we heard his voice."
That's Cynthia's Porsche behind her too - which was, apparently, the cause of the only row Pete Shotton ever saw between John & Cyn. More, tangentially, on Mr Shotton soon, and many thanks to Lizzie for this.
