    Even tho the colour is off in this photo, that roller still looks more silver or gray to me.

    I’ve seen that Rolls-Royce in a couple of other pictures. It’s a two-tone car. Looks like it’s a gold-beige (or possibly silver) with a dark gray or black top. John’s Rolls was white at this time. Paul didn’t get his green one until later, and it was a Corniche. George preferred Mercedes-Benz at this time. I don’t know if Ringo had a rolls, but he might have. I wish there was a book called Cars of the Beatles.

    Is this a supplemental car park at Abbey Road?

    Not that I’m aware of. Alma square behind the studios are mostly flats. I was back there once and don’t recall ever seeing an access road.

    According to: http://www.nemsworld.com/beatles/fritz/fritz.htm.
    “The Beatles and company then gathered outdoors next to the Madingley Club (on Willoughby Road). They first posed leaning against John’s Rolls-Royce with the River Thames behind them.” As Ms Tammy indicates, this doesn’t look like the white Rolls – suggesting that their may have been two parked there at the time of the photos…(possibly two Rolls were part of the entourage for the days shooting…)

    The engine on that Roller is as big as my entire car. :-)
