Kenwood: more front door.


Another "interesting" shot emerges - John answering the door to a fan sometime in 1968. This must be Two Virgins era, possibly from the period just before Yoko and he moved to Montagu Square.
The above shamelessly filched from Miss Tammy, the below shamelessly filched from Meet The Beatles For Real:

Kenwood: more sunroom.


A charming snap of Julian, on the fabled couch in the sunroom at Kenwood, probably circa late '66/early '67. This pic may well have been taken around the same time as the header image above. Or not. Note the rug. Or don't. (See labels below. Or etc.).
Thanks to the fabled Eric Nernie for submitting this.

Kenwood: living room - 16th June, 1965.


On the above date, a "meeting" was apparently held in the living room at Kenwood to discuss Ringo's vocal contribution to the Help! album. The above pic shows the "discussion" reaching its climax, with Act Naturally the winner, upon which some form of revelry involving some form of dancing was engaged in:


Good old noble (other) Alf. This one's been on here before too, but here it is again, for reasons of etc:

Kenwood: yet more Nothing.


Having stated categorically that no pictures exist showing a Nothing Box inside Kenwood...errr...here's a picture showing a Nothing Box inside Kenwood. This pic has been on here before, but cropped; the little blighter is there behind John in the uncropped version:


Also of "interest", given that this photo was taken in the library (aka the Den), is that the slightly wider perspective allows one to gain further clues to the reading material on offer. The only two tomes that I can make out are yer classic Shikshtiesh fare, ie For Your Eyes Only on the left, and something by Dennis Wheatley on the right:


A conceptual prize of Nothing whatsoever to any "readahs" who recognise any others.
