Wait, was Lizzie in the house?
Lizzie’s camera was in the house, kindly loaned by her to Stuart Kendell who had forgotten his.
Is that Eric Burdon with John in photo # 2 ?
Great pics, thanks Lizzie
great move on Lizzie’s behalf … loaning her camera and in return getting incredible candid photos!
it looks like Mick Jagger
There’s Paul’s “Au Revoir” Magritte apple above the fireplace in the
…picture with John in.
dunno what happened there. It posted before I finished.
Films on the coffee table…perhaps the infamous Paul films stolen by a couple of fans?
lizzie was outside waiting for john, as usual… that’s mick jagger, and there’s a young lady there too. terry doran was there also, and george arrived as stu was leaving. terry took the photos of stuart and the three guys (john, paul and mick), but stu only has one, which he gave me in high definition. his whole story, beautifully told to me in detail several times, is in my book. i sent the chapter to stuart, he loved it and it has now been professionally reviewed (for grammar, etc.) and my friend also loved it and made just a couple of minor changes. i can’t wait for you all to read it, i’m getting VERY excited as the book is nearer and nearer to being ready. stu had lost these two photos. i accidentally found them in a very tiny size, and with some research we got to the person who had bought them at an auction and this person kindly sent stu a better scan. since stu thinks there might be some more pix and/or negatives in his attick somewhere, i think i’m going to offer my cleaning services to his lovely wife and try to find them next time i’m in london! i am a fab cleaner, believe me! and i am well-known for finding things that have been lost for a long time.
Can’t wait to read that story (and others!) in your book, Lizzie! I can only imagine what they were talking about between sips of tea…
You make me “dizzy miss Lizzie” with your “eyewitness accounts”…truly insightful, thanks
How many thumbtacks are holding that drumskin to the wall?
hi again. just a note: since stu and i never exchanged names or addresses at the time, we only “found” each other a few years ago. he had never seen the stunning photo of john he had taken for me (the film in my camera only had ONE frame left!) nor had i ever seen the photo of him with the lads or these two or the one of martha sitting on paul’s lap that came out in the beatles monthly.
A few weeks ago we were in London, showing our 8-year old Beatle Daughter around the city. After fighting the crowds on Abbey Road, we went to Cavendish, and found it completely deserted. As we approached the house, the gates started to open! The wife and I began to hyperventilate, as a guy stepped out. He was from the company that does maintenance on all of Paul’s properties (MPL at Soho, Cavendish, the Essex estate, etc.). He was kind enough to keep the gates open for a few minutes while I prodded the wife to start taking pictures.
We chatted for a few minutes while the camera was snapping franticially. The front door of the house was open, and we could see the Grandfather clock by the door, and a few photo frames on the wall. Then the gates shut, he walked down the street and got into his car, and the three of us stood stunned on the sidewalk. The wife says it was the highlight of the whole trip, and we’ve got photos of our daughter standing in front of the open gates.
We found out later that Paul was in Canada at the time (the end of last month). I thought about John, and Lizzie, and our own previous experiences on this very patch of sidewalk. And all the people blocking traffic at that very moment over on Abbey Road.
