Kenwood: Cynthia Lennon Fanclub.

A rare example (and possibly the only example) of Cynthia fanclub ephemera. In terms of the minutiae of Lennon-era Kenwood, this is fairly...errr, minute, but it also provides another look at the writing paper favoured there at that time. The lines evident on the copy are because the paper was rough - John called it a "drag to write on" in a letter to his father, dated spring 1968. It's also vaguely interesting that the letter includes the address - by that point, they had clearly given up on any attempts to keep the location of John's house secret.
I'm not sure when the above dates from (I'd guess 1967), or what the symbol at the top represents (though again, I'd guess maybe something to do with TM). If anyone out there knows, then leave a comment.


  1. Where on earth did you find this?!? :)

    I've always thought Cyn was the most beautiful of all the Beatle wags, as well as being the most down to earth.

  2. I'm sorry if this has been suggested elsewhere on the site, but the symbol is the same one as painted by JP Fallon Coachworks onto the roof of John's Phantom V, innit?
