To me this looks like a photo one of the Beatles took (John or Paul) while Yoko and Linda were resting in a hotel bed. There is onely one other photo of Yoko and Linda together that I know of, so I think it is interesting to say the least.

These fans are hanging out John and Cyn's apartment in London (this was before they had bought their Kenwood home). Some interesting things about this photo is the rude message written on the pillar: "I hate Jane Asher and Pattie Boyde (sic) true hate." There is also written "I love Paul." How rude to write on the front of John's home that you hate Paul and George's girlfriend! Obviously these girls are jealous (can't blame them!) but the did not know Jane or Pattie and had no reason to deface private property saying that they hate them. It must have been difficult to be a "Beatle girl." I also find it interesting that to pass the time the girls were reading Beatles Monthly magazine and some magazine called "The Beatles in America." Judging from the photos on the front of that magazine (Feb 1964), I would guess this photo to be from mid 1964.

As I may have mentioned before, after photo taken by Beatles fans, my 2nd favorite type of Beatles photo are the private ones. These photos of John and Yoko from June 4, 1969 at Niagra Falls are just those type. After the Bed-in, the newlyweds (having been married in March of that year) went to Niagra Falls for a little honeymoon vacation time. Yoko recently released these photos from that day onto her flickr account (which I quickly stole). I think they are beautiful! But these make me wonder what other little gems Yoko (and other Beatles insiders) are sitting on that might get released to the public someday.....

Here is the Bob Gruen photo that ended up being used for John's green card (or at least close to it...obviously the same photo session)
John's green card is currently on display at the Rock an droll Hall of fame annex in NYC.
I really wish that I had larger copies of these photos. I also wish I knew what exactly was going on here. From what I understand, John was mad at Paul (during the Get Back sessions?) and jumped the fence to Paul's house then he threw something (a rock or a brick?) through Paul's window.
Can anyone clear this one up for me?
