Montagu Square: late summer, 1968.

A splendidly candid dead o' night shot of a slightly startled John, on the corner of Montagu Place and Montagu Square, no doubt freshly dropped off by Antony or Shotton post-White Album session. Yoko must be just out of frame behind him.
It's perhaps surprising that more photos of the pair of them outside number 34 haven't surfaced; but possibly no-one really knew they were there pre-bust, and post-bust, they weren't.
Thanks to Eric Nernie.


  1. And with the street sign in full view! Splendid!

  2. Great composition: letterbox, no-entry sign, Beatle. Very England

  3. Can we get a "then and now" post for this spot please Sean?

  4. Re. "then and now"s for Montagu Square: there may be something rather exciting coming soon (and I don't just mean the corner). I can say no more.

  5. great photo sean, this blog just keeps getting better and better!

  6. I finally got around to following my Beatles London book today, a great day had. Have to say that red phone box was a definite highlight!
