The Beatles go Christmas shopping in Harrods

Harrods, the luxury department store in Knightsbridge, London, opened especially for The Beatles on this evening to allow the group to do their Christmas shopping away from fans.

The out-of-hours shopping spree lasted three hours. John Lennon bought a garden slide for his son Julian, while both George Harrison and Ringo Starr bought items of furniture.
