Cavendish Avenue: more dome etc.

Apparently it's someone's birthday. Here are 3 Cavendish Avenue shots which I'd never seen before, together with a spot o' context. They were originally in an issue of the Observer magazine published in 1969, though the pics clearly date from earlier.
Above, Sir Fumbs admires his newly installed meditation dome (still there, though now containing Groucho Marx's old bed).
Below, Macca, sporting his MMT getup, looks out over the garden:

And, finally, in said garden surrounded by his Alice In Wonderland statues, later Ballad Of John And Yoko-ised:

Extrinsic affections and signalizations. Or something like that.


  1. wow! great pics, "new" to me. happy birthday to "our kid"!

  2. The photograph of John and Yoko in Cavendish seems to have been taken during the brief period when the couple lived with Paul.

  3. Are the green armchair and the low table the same ones that are in the "tachefest 67" photos?
