Cavendish Avenue: living room, 1969.

Interior pictures of Cavendish Avenue are fairly rare, but here's one of John and Yoko in the living room, in 1969. This room, overlooking the familiar back garden steps, was where the Beatles met before recording sessions or other Beatle business pre-Apple. On March 21, 1967, it also saw a visit from the Emperor of Eternity... apparently.

A weekend away, part 2: August 25, 1967.

This one taken by two Iraqi students, who found themselves sharing the train to Bangor with assorted table-tappers, on August 25, 1967. Lucky, really.
