In the summer of 1968 The Beatles were recording ‘The Beatles’ (The White Album).
The lads were tired of seeing themselves in the papers as either moptops or flower-powered hippies
To produce a new set of more contemporary publicity images, Don McCullin was commissioned for a day-long shoot (Sunday 28th July) around various locations in London: the Sunday Times building on Gray’s Inn Road, Cable Street in the East End, Whitechapel, Old Street roundabout, Limehouse, Paul’s house in St. John’s Wood
The Beatles had their new 1968 image.
These are some less known pictures from that session.
