Kenwood: sunroom - June 29, 1967.

June 29, 1967 was a busy day chez Lennon. Not only was he playing host to Simon and Marijke and being fitted with new clothing courtesy of a French seamstress (or rather "een jonge Franse modeontwerpster"), but he also, as any fule noe, had the Beatles Book monthly round to record all this and more, photographically; and praise be to the church of your choice that he did, for otherwise there would be no visual record of Kenwood's interior at that time, give or take the odd fan photo of the sunroom.
So here is another scan from the Dutch magazine PEP, ca 1967; I'd never seen this particular photo before, and it's surprising (and surprisingly good) that "new" shots from this session continue to surface.
While I'm about it, I may as well also include the following - comped, imperfectly, from two images in an attempt to gain a whole wall perspective; which didn't exactly work, but nevertheless...

Huge thanks again to Ron de Bruijn for the first photo.
