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 Letter to Brown University Radio Station 1973

John Lennon & Yoko Ono Signed Letter from 1973

A typed letter of thanks written by John Lennon and Yoko Ono, dated March 9, 1973, on Capitol Records letterhead to the Brown University radio station, signed by both. For better or worse (and many angry Beatles' fans still claim for worse), John Lennon and Yoko Ono became Rock-n-Roll's First Couple when they married on March 20, 1969. The one-page typed document thanks Andy Simons of WBRU Radio for helping to promote Ono's 1973 solo album Approximately Infinite Universe. Yoko signs "Yoko Ono" ("10") in brown ink beneath the salutation. John adds a short typed postscript, which reads simply "P.S. I agree. - John" and then signs beneath, "John Lennon" ("10") also in brown ink. A letter such as this, signed by both, is a very unusual rarity, with a significance together far greater than the sum of the signatures individually. The letter exhibits four small tack holes (three in the corners and one bottom center, very likely the result of having been displayed upon receipt at Brown University's radio station), and normal mailing folds..
