Picture by Astrid Kirchherr. It is Frank Hessy's Music Centre. Looking at the public's haircut, I'd say it's 63 or 64. I assume it's Frank himself in the shop and I do think that the pictures are from the same day. I have Astrid's book with this picture at home and I can check the exact date later if you want.

Thnk you SO much onec more, Bobber!! ;)

Judging from Hessy's look -and assuming that he is the man-, it seems that both photos could be taken at the same time.., couldn't they?? What do you think??

Of course, my main interest is the Spanish guitar seen at the front in the 1st picture...

Best!! ;)

Aha... Good!! ;)

This means that the man is Gretty and not Hessy. Gretty was the one who taught several intricate guitar chords to teenagers PM and GH..., wasn't he??

Thank you so much pc31!! ;)

Judging by the guitars hanging on the wall aswell as his haircut and uniform makes it seem reasonable to say that they were both taken on the same day to me. :)

Oh yes...

If those 2 photos were taken by Astrid Kircherr..., when was Astrid in Liverpool?? I mean: she was at London somewhere in 1964, and she made there some photo sessions at Beatles' homes..., didn't she?? Which month?? Maybe those Liverpool's photos were taken at the same time..

Best!! ;)

^I think around the time of the recordings of A Hard Day's Night, so spring 1964. There's pictures of the film in the book as well. I'll be home tonight late, I will check Astrid's book on the copyrights and so.

Ok. I will wait for your news tonight...

BTW: does anybody know if Olivia Harrison has any kind of 'George Harrison foundation'?? Perhaps George's Ramirez is still part of Olivia's goods...

Best!! ;)

All pictures dated from spring 1964.

Picture of George and Astrid:  "Astrid at George and Ringo's rented Green Street flat in London.
Picture of John (there is another one of John actually playing the guitar. I will have to scan the picture to show it in here): ' John plays guitar at his and Cynthia's London flat.

There's a couple of more pictures of George playing guitar as well (including the one with Ringo on the background), but they're not as good as the one already posted. There's also another picture of Ringo with the guitar, fooling around somewhat.

I thought the girl at the photo was Pattie Boyd, but is Astrid..., isn't she??

Could be possible to get the other photos of George playing guitar??

Thank you VERY much!! ;)

Yes, that's Astrid Kirchherr.

I can make a scan of the other pictures of George playing guitar and of John as well, but I won't see a scanner until Friday, so you'll have to wait a little while.  :)

Ok. Thanks anyway... ;)

I think I have the other photo of John with the guitar (=this one??), and I wonder where that guitar comes from, as it's not a Spanish guitar...

There's two or three pictures of John playing. Two from the front so you'll be able to identify the roset (sp?) maybe.
