Japanese Lessons

Photo by
Sharon Uzarewicz

One of the nice folks that follow "Meet the Beatles for Real" on facebook, Christopher Lackner posted this amazing John photo in the group this week. 

He says that he purchased the photo from Sharon Uzarewicz in 1986 or 1987 for just $5.00 at a Chicago Beatlefest.    Sharon told Christopher that the photo was taken in New York city when John was either going to or coming back from a Japanese language lesson.   From the look of that jacket and hair, it seems to be spring of 1976 to me.


  1. I think it was end ol 1976 or spring '77. In January 76, John cut his hair very short, and snapped a picture that would have ended on the Greencard; in July, when they handed him theso longed card he still had hair quite short. If you see the photos of the winter following, note the same haircut fas in this beautiful picture, often the same plaid shirt and sweater with zip...

  2. i remember that name! i must have met her at one of the fests.

  3. Japanese apple = "Ringo" (according to Yoko on Dick Cavett Show)

    Gorgeous photo of John and his ringo! ;-)
