Kenwood: summer, 1967.

More Lizzie, and this time in colour. Most of these clearly taken in summer, and the gate remains open to all comers.
Two of the caravan, the left by Lizzie, the right from her collection, but snapper unknown (get in touch if it's you).
Quite splendid:

Two of the den end; circa, respectively, March and June 1967:

Kenwood, obscured by foliage:

Innareshtingly, most of the above may well date 26th June 1967, ie the day after Our World (and 3 days prior to the Leslie Bryce Kenwood session).
Fantastic "stuffs" - thanks Lizzie - further to follow.


  1. Great pics. Love that 60s tone to the colour photos. Instagram's filters don't come close. Thanks again Lizzie.

  2. they look great, sean! i'm so pleased that i can share with you fellow kenwoodites (is that what we call ourselves or did i just make up a word in english?)!. regards from a beautiful afternoon in rio de janeiro.

  3. Nice stuff. I'm no Sherlock but I doubt those trees grew that much in 3 months. Frame #3. That appears to be two different years. Possibly 1966 and 67

  4. Lizzie wasn't in the UK in 1966, so maybe 67 and 68, though there is more to the tree than there seems at first glance in the winter pic, and 3 months was a very rough guess. I still reckon they could be the same year - things tend to change a lot between winter and summer round these parts (as you no doubt know).
