The mystery is solved

Last night I posted what I thought was an Apple Scruffs' stationary sheet with 3 Savile Row on the front. Well many of you posted in the comments about how it wasn't totally authentic because the photo of the building was too old etc etc. One of the many friends of this blog, Guus, emailed me and told me that photo of 3 Savile Row was HIS photo! He has no idea how it ever got connected to the Apple Scruffs because he took the photo in 1976. As a matter of fact, that is his car that is parked right out front. At the time of the photo, Apple still owned the building, but later that year it was sold. So at least now we know who took the photograph!

  1. It's always an "adjustment" to see a pic of a familiar location that takes in a bit more of the surrounding area. This . . the zebra crossing . . you name it.
    Makes one realize . . "wow, it's actually part of a street . . . in a section of town no less !"
    I'm not saying I love this, mind you. Almost makes it more mundane . . almost ! But when one focuses past a scuffed-up curb or a dumpster on the left, the magic remains.
