Previously unseen: The Beatles at rest
 
The photojournalist Michael Peto, a dyed-in-the-wool socialist, was more interested in capturing coal mines on film than the Beatles as he established his formidable reputation in Britain in the 1960s. In fact the many rolls he shot of the band relaxing during breaks in filming Help! in 1965 did not even make it to picture editors' desks. They ended up instead in the back room of a university's archives.
The world can now see what the newspapers missed. Three years after Peto's pictures were unexpectedly discovered by archivists at Dundee University, a selection of the best will go on show in London on Thursday, as part of the launch of a book of Peto's Beatles images, entitled Now These Days Are Gone, published by Genesis Publications.
The exhibition at the Hoopers Gallery in Clerkenwell Close is curated by one of Peto's students and prot

 :o I'm surprised about how many short-sighted ones existed at that time ... BTW I'm more surprised about the new found treasures they are discovering every year ... hope the well's not going to dry up.  ;D

Thanks for sharing this, Bobber ... Sure that those pics are awesome.

Opnieuw bedankt, Bobber.

That pic of George eating ice-cram is cool. I don't know why but Rubber Soul came to my mind instantly when I saw that one.

I'm not saying these were unseen but ... were are they?  ??) (obviously by 1969) ... waiting for Bob's concert to start (Festival of the Isle of Wight, August 31, 1969)? ... but where's Ringo then?  ??)

If it is the Island then I will hunt down that fireplace! lol

Oh, I haven't got a clue about the place  :-/ ... I was just guessing  :B ... by the look it has to be about the end of summer or begining of autumn of 1969 and there's not much info about them being together by that time ... and less doing things like the ones shown in the pics ...

That looks like it might be India to me. The windows don't look particularly English. Looks more like a colonial building than an English one. There appears to be no sign of Ringo either, unless I've missed him.

By the beards, are you with me that it has to be end of summer or autumn 1969? ... they were into Indian things again by mid 1969 ... spice-alley John and George ... could it be a Hare Krishna Temple or something like that but in England?! I think so ...


Taking a look here:

Hare Krsna Mantra / Prayer To The Spiritual Masters (single)
The Radha Krsna Temple


Released August 22, 1969 in the US; August 29, 1969 in the UK
Co-produced by George Harrison
George played guitar, bass and harmonium on

Did George have that big f*uck off house of his by then? It could be there. I seem to remember that he gave some of it over to Radha Krishna Temple.

I have a book called The Unseen Archives, filled with pictures from the archives of the Daily Mail. It contains a picture of Yoko preparing food in a kitchen, wearing the exact same clothes and bandana as pictured above. Text with the photo says: "Yoko gets to grips with her new kitchen as she and John finally take up residence at Tittenhurst Park, a 60-acre estate with a mansion near Ascot. Cost: 145,000 pounds." A Dutch chronology book said (-translated for you-): "George and Patti, Ringo and Maureen, John and Yoko, Neil Aspinall and Mal Evans visit a concert of Bob Dylan on the Isle of Wight. After that, the complete group (including Dylan) flies to Tittenhurst Park by helicopter."
The Daily Mail book shows pictures of George with members of the Indian group alongside Yoko's picture. I don't want to jump to conclusions, but could the Raxo's pictures by taken at Tittenhurst?

P.S. By the way, I've lost the famous pic of John (with Yoo) George and Ringo (and I think some of their wives too) sitting atending to Bob's concert in August 1969 ... but their looks were very very similar to the ones shown in the pics I've posted here ... I think they are all from about the same time: end of August - September ... [...]

Well, I was talking about this pic ...

And I think the clothes John and Yoko are wearing in the first pics and in the one at the concert are the same ... so I think you're right ... it seems that it should be Tittenhurst ... the funny thing is that they are sitting in the floor ... tired of the journey?  ;D

Probably not. Indians and Bob are hard to mix. And they were busy invading Tittenhurst.

John's Tittenhurst Park had windows like those ... and even bigger:
