Do the banisters still exist?
The answer should be . . . yes
You guys are good. Great photos. Keep em coming.
Great thread! Hope you post a lot more of your cool and nostalgic pics!
Yes! I thought this would take longer to identify. The former Indica Gallery is located in Mason's Yard a courtyard type square that is secluded from the London Mayfair area that from what I saw only had one entrance/exit to and from the yard. It became a hang out for some of the British 60's rock stars. Eric Burden lived in one of the apartments located there. It was perfect for the celebrities to get away from it all while still in the heart of London.
This was a bookstore owned by Peter and Jane Asher before a gallery was added. Of course, this is where John met Yoko.
I know these sites because I co-wrote the book
I don't know but I seem to remember reading somewhere that when they were removed they were taken away to be stored somewhere north of London. Maybe someone can confirm?
I get it!
I am loving the hell out of this thread!!!
Brian Epstein's place (had a poster of them in the doorway at the Pepper party).
Brian Epstein’s house
Yes! 24 Chapel Street. This is where he died. Many think he committed suicide but I believe it was actually ruled as an accidental overdose of prescription medicine. Here's a picture on his porch taken at the Sgt. Pepper release party that you referred to:
The date listed for overdubs on Get Yer Ya Yas out (Jan 69) must be wrong. Weren't the shows in November 1969?
I many similar photos, but I'm in most of them (to prove to myself I was there), but that kind of ruins them for general consumption.
34 montagu square?
Yes! You're a winner! John & Yoko moved into this residence when he left Cynthia. It was owned by Ringo. Later, Ringo leased it to Jimi Hendrix but I think Ringo evicted him. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. My memory is not what it used to be.
I had to crop out the blue plaque in the picture so that Mal wouldn't see it but I'll re-post the original along with a picture of the plaque outside the residence with a picture of John being arrested from this location:
I have other photos of this tour that me and my family are in, but they think that I'm a nerd for doing this and I don't think they would appreciate being seen as nerds also. I don't mind so I'll post one of me without them. My wife took the photo and I made her stand in the middle of Abbey Road traffic and all! She did good!:
Saville Row as an Abercrombie and Fitch store - how depressing. Everything that is aborrent about contemporary culture.
#10 - is it the place Ringo & George shared? In the Anthology, Ringo talks about when they first moved. No idea of address though, just know London
