Fireplace: ???

...as is usually the way with all this, getting one bit pushes another one out. I'd assumed up to now that the last pic here, with John sporting his Dylan cap, must have been taken at the same time as the pics in the last post, in the drawing room, looking over his shoulder towards the fireplace. But...that doesn't look like the same fireplace. I went back and had a look at the '68 footage to see if that really was the drawing room, and I'm pretty sure it is. Compare the screencap of Yoko with the "new" drawing room pic - that's the same staircase...and the new one definitely is the drawing room - compare the fireplace with the 2006 shot. But where, in that case, is the other fireplace pic from? Kenwood does have 2 or 3 chimneys. So...the dining room? One of the bedrooms? Or maybe it is the same fireplace, but taken at a different time, with different decor. (It's hard, sometimes, to make out details in these pics because the quality of the scans is not very good). I don't know...and I'm going to stop thinking about it now.
