Kenwood: garden steps, 1965, 1967 & 2008.





3 shots from the same location - the top of the garden steps, just below the dining room. The first two pics have been on here before, but I must confess it wasn't until Joe Baiardi sent me his great 2008 shot (new to the blog) yesterday that I realised this was it - compare the distinctive dark coloured bricks in the John/Cyn pic with the same in the fan shot from 1967. I'm struck yet again by the way that Whitaker managed to keep Kenwood out of the many famous photos taken on the steps during the 1965 photo shoot (see posts passim). The art of the photographer, or instructions from John? It's quite possible that in 1965 John wanted to keep images of his house out of the press. Anyway, thank ye yet again to Mr Baiardi for his generosity in sharing this stuff.
