After their photography session at the Mercury Theatre in Notting Hill, The Beatles’ Mad Day Out continued towards Highgate Cemetery in north London.
The Beatles wanted to be photographed by Karl Marx’s tomb in the eastern part of the cemetery, but got no further than Swain’s Lane outside. They posed on a bench outside 79 Swain’s Lane, and then in front of 59 Swain’s Lane.
Afterwards they headed to location four, Old Street in north London.
