  1. The Beatles had played in Edinburgh the night before.
    They played in Glasgow on the 30th, so the photo must have been taken before they drove to Glasgow.

    1. John me a kid named John Lennon in Toronto 1966. I am very sure that this is a cousin or nephew of John's.

    2. I think your right, Sara
      It`s definitely not the young Toronto John Lennon, Sara. There is a pic of him here on MTBFR.

    3. From "The Scotsman", 11th Dec 2014.

      On 29 April 1964, Edinburgh was gripped by Beatlemania when the Fab Four arrived to perform at the ABC Lothian Road. Despite his celebrity status, John opted to crash at his cousin Stan Parkes’ house on Bryce Crescent, Currie after the show. The following morning, Lennon made a quick trip to the nearby R S McColl to buy a packet of Rothmans. The girl behind the counter “nearly fainted” when she clocked who it was

  4. No Kennedy is right - it was just a child staying at or near the hotel who happened to be called John Lennon.

    1. Where did you get this information? As Jonathan posted above, John stayed with his cousin, Stan Parks and was seen with family members. Where did you find this new information?

  6. I found the information. This IS the same boy that John met in Toronto 2 years later and not a family member if you believe this article.
