Tittenhurst Park

This Tittenhurst Park blog is dedicated to John Lennon's home in Sunningdale, near Ascot, Berkshire between 1969 and 1971. The aim is to gather as much material relating to the estate as possible - obviously with the emphasis on the Lennon-era, but also concerning Tittenhurst Park as it was before and after John Lennon's ownership. In addition, there will be posts about and associated with the Beatles, plus any other rubbish I feel like. The blog is purely meant for the entertainment of anyone (assuming there is actually anyone) who, like me, has an unhealthy interest in one particular Georgian mansion. Those with anything interesting to contribute in the way of links, photos, scans, stories etc. please do contact me: tittenhurstlennon@gmail.com
(Legal: this blog is strictly non-commercial. All material is the property of the photographer/artist/copyright holder concerned. Any such who wishes a picture etc to be removed should contact me and I will do so. Alternatively, if someone is happy to see their photo on here, but would like a credit/link then let me know and I'll be happy to provide one).


John Lennon and Yoko Ono Lennon Barclay's Bank Signature Reference Card

John Lennon and Yoko Ono Lennon Barclay's Bank Signature Reference Card

This Barclay's Bank of New York signature card for "John Lennon" ("10") and "Yoko Ono Lennon" ("9") was used by the bank to verify their signatures for their checking account. As was standard practice, the authorized signatures of each, as provided by John and Yoko on the form filled out by the Lennons to open their checking account, were cut from the form by the bank, and taped to the signature verification card for future reference. A "Sig Confirmed" ink stamp intentionally marries the signature cuts to the reference card, which is then taped to the card. When checks came to the bank drawn on the Lennons' account, these are the signatures that Barclay's referenced for verification. In addition to being a very unusual John Lennon and Yoko Ono signed item, this is a particularly interesting document as it presents a very rare "Yoko Ono Lennon" signature. It's presumed this signature card dates from the very early 1970s, shortly after John and Yoko were married. On the reverse is the Lennons' business address. This is a very interesting and unique item signed by both John and Yoko Lennon.
