A change of plan. Rather than follow the route of the MDO I decided on a more random route through the metropolis via Portabello Rd. Further annotations to come but meanwhile prizes to those who recognise the Beatle significance of these snaps.

Where they partied - what ? A pound a drink ?

Who ate here whilst waiing for a bus ? Using ivory cutlery ?

After a little unseemly haggling I acquired the above 1963 poster, dog-eared and frayed, for £20. Bargain ? What does that mean? The stall owner at the boot fair, tired and wet from the earlier downpour, asked me what it was worth. I don't know, I said slightly disingenuously (a framed version in the Beatle Shop on Baker Street has a £300 price tag but then it is frequented by nuts - self included). Not sure what I would have paid. Perhaps £50 max ? But having stumbled across it when really not expecting it, I had to have it. It started to rain again and the stall holders were packing up. So £20 it was.
