When you open up the LP, there's a photo that covers the whole inside, of a group of apparently ordinary people standing behind an iron grate fence, facing the camera, the four Beatles among them.
For years, I've always wondered about one guy in the photo. He's way over on the right (our right), very clean-cut, almost Kennedy-esque good looks. He seems to be giving the squirrel-eye, a kind of hostile stare, at someone way over on the left (our left), just to Paul's right. It seems the object of his stare is some other young guy who is just minding his business, looking straight ahead at the camera, his arms crossed.
Okay, just wanted to get that off my chest after all these years, and I guess this is just the venue for it. It would be neat if anyone else ever noticed this and wondered about it.

P.S.: I couldn't figure out how to make the picture as large as it appears at Google Images --

I never really thought about that guy before, or noticed that he looked like a Kennedy.

Dunno where, but I've got a vague recollection of reading that it was taken during the Mad Day Out. Not sure about that tho; surely Joe or someone else would be able to confirm/deny.

Im pretty sure the location of that picture is written on the red and blue lps. Loved looking at the pic when i was younger and how the red and blue covers were so similar.

I used to stare at that píc for hours when I was a child. (One of my sisters had Red and Blue Albums). I also used to think in theories of who the people were. I was convinced it was a photo montage and the boy at the front was John Lennon as a kid.
Of course I was wrong. But this shows how much that pic fascinated me.

To me, it appears there are several people looking in the same direction as "Mr. Arms-Crossed" including George, Paul and Ringo.
What I really want to know is why that one kid in front is the only one outside the fence. Did he manage to capture all of those people and they were his prisoners?
*did anyone else just hear Patti Boyd say "Prisoners?"*

That picture was taken during the Mad Day Out, and they are at St Pancras Old Church, according to this site.
I think unknown was referring to Beatles Bible. Yeah, you can read about it here.
