On Tumblr this weekend I keep coming across these photos that say "Unreleased" under them.  They must have just been found because being the Beatles Tumblr nerd that I am, I have seen most pictures 1000x over.  I have never seen any of these before.

I will post them here, and I will try to date them. Most look like '69.  Help is appreciated as I may get some wrong!  a-hard-days-night-john-6

 

'68?:

I think these both are '68 or 69:

Same with this one.  Also: Ugh. Can.You.Not.

69:

Definitely 67...  This one didn't say "unreleased" but I have never seen it:

Again, 69:

John as a teenager...  maybe 16?

 

Oh...  you're welcome.  a-hard-days-night-john-1

Thank you!! I've only seen one - and that was just last week on FB. If they just got released at the same time, perhaps a fan was scanning photos from several sources. For the '69 photos, my guess is they were taken by Linda.

Linda, good call!  That would make sense as to why she isn't in any of them!

Wow, that last one of John is amazing, never seen him looking like that before. So fascinating to see him as a young teenager before he adopted the teddy boy look. Thanks so much LHL! Here's an Apple apple01

The last one of John almost doesn't look like John simply because of his nose - it might just be he photo though, but on that photo his nose seems less hooked than ones from '69 and later.

I'm, like, almost completely certain that the claimed '13 year old John' picture is NOT John, seeing how he didn't get his first guitar until 14 or 15, (correct me if i'm wrong), and I have seen the picture on tumblr, and I really don't think the certain user, not gonna point a name, isn't a very reliable resource... a-hard-days-night-paul-11

It doesn't look like John to me.

I don't think it's John either, if you've seen pictures of him around the age he got his guitar, he looks like a young MAN, not the boy in that pic (and the resemblance isn't quite there, either)

Allright Alright I took it down, sheesh.  Pardon me for getting one wrong.  Now can we concentrate on the positive, maybe?  The other 24 pictures?  ahdn_paul_01

Oh, I wasn't saying you should take it down! I was just echoing what some others said about it. The rest of the pics are wonderful and I do thank you for sharing with us! :D

Well four comments in a row about how it's "obviously" not John...  why would I keep it up?  Makes me feel like I a was an idiot for thinking it was John.  Sorry, that's just how my brain works!  a-hard-days-night-john-7

You're welcome, glad you enjoy the others (Hannah too).

No one was having a go LHLheart. Cool to see Mary Hopkin behind Paul with the trombone, here's hoping he played it better than the trumpet on OANS.

Always great to see new pictures of the four moptops - plus we get to see Paul with Martha.a-hard-days-night-paul-5

The Beatles biblers are protecting the truth. They've got your back, LHL. Post as many pictures as you like without worrying about passing on incorrect info. All is well.

Post as many as you can.a-hard-days-night-john-6

There is a ton of incorrect information out there regarding Beatles and dates so one photo from elsewhere that you passed on in good faith will not reflect upon you. It's not like you wrote a book which omitted the entry for Beatles For Sale or claimed that Brian died in 1962.

I've only just logged in and seen this thread so I had no idea which photo you were talking about, 'cos that last picture is definitely John! Thought you'd all gone mad then, or me!

Anyway, thanks for sharing those, LHL. They're beautiful. I've been a bit away from here and I've missed looking at and discussing ''my boys'' heart
