Cavendish Avenue: refurbishment - 1965.

It took Paul over a year to move in to Cavendish Avenue, mainly because of the inevitable internal and external refurbishment. Above is how the place looked shortly after he bought it, but before he'd moved in: no gate yet, and the door still to be replaced. But comparing these 3 shots (1961/1965/1968), I don't see a lot of difference (though I'm sure all the work was "essential", not to mention, surely coincidentally, "extortionate"):


  1. Strange coincidence. I saw this Chris Farley clip yesterday (I didn't know who he was).

  2. Remember when Paul was with the Beatles? That was awesome.
