For over thirty years this remarkable image sat in the bountiful files of photographer David Redfern’s extensive picture archive. David had taken the shot when he was covering the Beatles and the group called into Plymouth, in September 1967, when they were in the Westcountry filming The Magical Mystery Tour – the clothes are those they wore on the coach in the film. A couple of years ago the image was published in David’s book of music photographs – the Unseen Eye, that was where Chris Robinson first saw the image. Sometime later when looking for material from the last fifty years for his Elizabethan Plymouth Pictorial review, he contacted David Redfern and asked if he could reproduce the picture in the book and the accompanying calendar.
Money changed hands, permission was granted, and such was the response to the picture that Chris went back to them and asked about the possibility of producing a fine art print of the picture.
And here it is, measuring 500 mm by 700 mm (28 x 20 inches) and in glorious colour this is an image any office would welcome and which many will want for their own homes or study.
Promoting Plymouth and capturing a group of individuals that have helped define the Elizabethan era this is a “must have” product available for just £16.95.
