Kenwood: more from early 1968.


More pictures of John, outside the front door at Kenwood, have come to light (it's been a bit of an outside-the-front-door-at-Kenwood-drooling-frenzy today); three of these are from the same time as the pic posted earlier this morning, taken by Sue Baker.
And despite the blemishes of age, amazingly vivid they are too.
A hitherto unseen statue has appeared. Something is resting on the head of one of the others. John looks...about par for the course. He's carrying a drawing of some kind. The hall curtains are closed to the world.
Yes, very evocative, they effortlessly capture something of the intriguing, haunted quality that the house possesses:



Many thanks once again to an old friend of this blog and others, Bruno Dupont, for giving me the nod about these. Merci.
