Kenwood: ca. February 1967.


Dot Jarlett's archive is up for auction, and amongst other examples of Kenwoodalia are these; "innaresting" because they show a small slice of vérité from what I'd guess is the early part of 1967. Have a look at the pic above, for example. That at least appears to be Cyn and a fully tached-up John peering down from the sunroom:


Another one of Julian messing about by the pool, but again there seems to be someone in a chair in the sunroom, gazing out over the grounds:


Note feline on the left:


A little seen corner of the pool. Note the door in the wall on the left, and the collection of junk under the garage:


To wit:


There are also a number of photos showing a visit to a local park by Cynthia, Julian and another couple of people, who look to me like John's aunt Mater, and his cousin Stan:


I could well be completely wrong about that, but once again have a look at the sunroom in this one:


Mater chatting to Cyn as John sits looking out the window?:


Palpable nonsense. Finally, a shot of the interior sunroom. No Monterey poster yet, o' course, as the titular festival had yet to happen, but most of the other familiar elements in place:


Ahh, sweet flagrant trivia.
