They Wait for Their Paul

This is a short story written by Christel Lorenz for Bravo Magazine in 1968 about a trip she took to London and saw a lot of girls hanging around Paul's house.   For those who were unable to make the trip to London during that time, I think it would have been surprising to learn that so many girls were hanging around Paul's house day and night....

I have just returned from a 14 day stay in England. Since I'm a big Beatles fan, I visited the house of Paul McCartney in St. Johns Wood on the first day.  It was of course a  little adventure for me to  find Paul's house, because St. Johns Wood is not a  small place. When I finally asked someone on the street where I should turn to get to Paul's house, I knew immediately it was his door.  There were at least 10 to 12 girls sitting on the garden wall and waiting  until "her" Paul came out. Sometimes when a few went away, others were added. But I never saw the place in front Paul's house completely empty.

As proof of my report I pressed a couple of times on the trigger of my camera box and can show you these two pictures.
