Kinfauns: please Go away.

George in 1967, apparently post-EMI session, looking more than a little displeased; his eccentrically punctuated plea first ignored, and then, no doubt, nicked. So it goes.
George was often pictured at this door, which served as de-facto front door, being closest to the entrance gate. It was actually the way in to the dining room:

Thanks to Joe Baiardi for this splendid snap (relatively hi-res too).


  1. Aw how sweet -looks he's offering something (cookies perhaps?) from a paper bag to the pic snapper.
    Another caption could be "alright who broke in and stole the contents of this here baggie?"

  2. Hopefully it's not "You shorted me, man."

  3. I'd say that he's stoned out of his mind here. Perhaps he is offering the photographer whatever it was he had been eating himself

  4. Looks like he`s just had a spliff and he`s got the munchies..!!

  5. i wonder... was he high or was it the flash?
