Kenwood: various random photos.

With thanks to Sara Schmidt and Joe Baiardi.


  1. Kenlen,

    Thank you for sharing these pictures! :)

    I hope you don't mind any fans with memories of John, or Kenwood, or any articles that lie undiscovered regarding John's life at Kenwood would be super, the more the miscellany the better I guess! ..it's such fun trying to figure out which date or day they were taken!

    I've asked the masses to share their pics on another site with you Kenlen, this aids our re-discovercy of The Beatles, their lives, their music and appreciate the seminal era which John Lennon experienced whilst at Kenwood.

    btw, do you have the drawing John made for his lighthouse-idea on the Greek Island?

    Regards as ever



  2. Hello Milky,

    I think the lighthouse thing was Yoko's idea - there is a picture and some comments from Yoko on her flickr site. She says John invited her to tea at Kenwood, and asked her to build it in the garden. She replied that it was purely conceptual, and John was a bit disappointed!

  3. Off Topic:
    Oh! Another Ken Wood here! Hello brother!
