Kenwood: more entrance hall.

Always "n-n-n-nice" to see new pics o' Kenwood back in the day...and here are a couple hitherto not widely seen. These were taken, as regulah readahs will know, in the entrance hall (dark, "bok"-lined, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc...). Note the "boks":

...and, more interestingly, that guitar again...:

The pic of Julian was used (I think) to sell the table visible behind him at auction not that long ago. More on that, inevitably, to follow.
Huge thanks to Mark Jones for sending the pics.


  1. I'm probably miles behind everybody here, but, behind Julian, is that an illustration of Pepper-era John that 'that guitar' is balancing against?

  2. Yes, it is. Well spotted. Where is that from?

  3. At first I thought this was the John painting, but now I don't think it is. but I thought I might as well through that out there.

    That could always be a painting a fan did of John and gave to him . Fans were always doing artwork and giving it to the Beatles.
