Has anybody ever seen these pictures?  I came across them on tumblr tonight:

Apparently, but this is from tumblr so I have absolutely no idea how true it is, she is a model that Paul "secretly" dated when he was with Jane?  I know (even according to "Many Years From Now")  who Francie Schwartz is and of course countless other women over the years, but I was really surprised to find them because I have seen millions of pictures of Paul, and have never come across any of these before, or heard the name before...  They almost look photo-shopped.  Looks like around 1968, maybe just before Linda was a permanent fixture?  Tumblr says 1966, but I don't trust it...  but maybe, I can't tell.  The last picture looks older than the rest of them, it might not even belong, I don't know.  If I could see if he has the scar on his lip I could tell the year, but it be too grainy.

Hope someone has some input!  a-hard-days-night-john-1

She does appear to be someone who Paul was involved with between 1966 and 1968. These pictures appear to date from a short trip they took to Sardinia at the beginning of September 1968. (The tee-shirt would appear to be the one he wears in the Revolution video on 4 September.) The photos do not look like they have been photoshopped to me, merely poor quality scans from a newspaper article.

This is what I have been able to gather about the story coming out.

In 1997 the British Daily Mail revealed the relationship, with confirmation from Maggie's mother. Later, unhappy with aspects of how the Daily Mail had told the story, she gave what appears to be her only interview to the British People newspaper, looking to correct the Daily Mail version of events. I would suggest these pictures are taken from that article.

That article, or something based on it, appears on Beatle Photo Blog (below the pictures).

In a Daily Mail article published in 2010, which is an edited extract from Howard Sounes' FAB: An Intimate Life of Paul McCartney (a book I haven't read myself), she is referred to again in a piece detailing Paul's love life. Importantly, it includes a confirmation of the relationship from Barry Miles.

"'They saw each other on and off for quite a few years,' says his friend, the writer Barry Miles, confirming  that Maggie was 'only one of many'."

I would suggest that were Sounes' misquoting Miles, Miles would have sued.

The article is here:

Hope this helps.

Were many girls on "the pill" back then, or was that later on?  Or maybe his promiscuousness back then is completely false because it was some kind of cover up and he wasn't not the dirty slut he's been made out to be.....

 ... yeah, probably not.  ahdn_paul_01

 

Another thing:  I'm not sure I believe the part of Maggie's story about Paul going to see her all upset the night before he was to marry Linda.  It could have happened, but I would like to think that he was pretty devoted to Linda at that point, being about to marry her and plus her being pregnant (which, according to Paul, was not an accident).  It's easy for people to fantasize things like that, to make it out to be more than it was.

Well, the pill is directly related to the sexual Revolution, so  that would be around the time women would have started using it. Another question is, would Paul be using protection too? :->

Supposedly Paul and Linda had a huge argument the night before they married and almost called off the wedding. Perhaps the two stories are related?

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

That's true, I totally forgot about that!  Hmmm...
