Tittenhurst Park

From the Pete Nash collection
So this photo comes from Issue #38 (Oct. 2010) of the British Beatles Fan club Magazine (one of my favorites).  It is my favorite feature from this magazine:  The Crap Photo of the Month.   I keep coming back and looking at it.   Here is the caption:

This photograph was taken on 11th September 1969 when Srila Prabhupada, founder of the Hare Krishna movement, arrived as a house guest at Tittenhurst Park and met with John, Yoko and George Harrison.  What might have been a fairly good photograph turned out crap due to  the inept photographer failing to fix the image properly when developing from the negative.  Hare Krishna!

  1. Good enough for me! The next-to-last "Beatles"-photos if you like (Two Beatles present (even though I cannot spot George here), prior to John`s announcement of leaving the Beatles. The last being the photos from the "divorce"-meeting, if those are in fact from that date). This event also was recorded. The date is given as September 11 in Winn IIRC but as September 15 on this source:
    When I first saw the photo I was wondering if it is some esoteric attempt to make astral energy visible or akin. But no, just a mishap! ;-)
