Looks like it could be from around the time of their appearance in The Rolling Stones Rock And Roll Circus (December 1968)

A couple of pictures of the roof at Savile Row being checked to see if they could play up there.

Paul playing Ringo's kit in the back garden of his Cavendish Avenue home sometime in 1969:

The shirt appears to be the same one as he's seen wearing in one of the pictures in the gatefold of the McCartney album.

Here's more from Paul recording at Cavendish at the end of '69. You can see an old Beatles drop-T drumhead in the lower right...

Some interesting pictures from August 1969*. The description says here, they were recording the backing track to The End and adding overdubs to Come Together

*my guess would be August 7th, the day before the Abbey Road album cover photoshoot (https://www.beatlesbible.com/1.....er-the-endalthough Ringo doesn't have a full beard in the pictures above.

I'd suggest that the description of adding overdubs to Come Together  and recording the backing track to The End , means that the August dating is wrong. It seems far more likely to be the 23 July session which began with Paul finally nailing the Oh! Darling  vocal after days of coming in early to give it another go. When the others arrived, they overdubbed additional vocals onto take 9 of Come Together  and recorded 7 takes of the backing track for The End .

The couple of weeks between this session and the cover photoshoot on 8 August would give Ringo time to grow a beard.

We're all in a bag, the use of a bag is in actual fact only symbolic of the unseen bag(s) that we and others are placed in by ourselves and others.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 One of a series of publicity shots of them signing the new Capitol contract Klein had negotiated on the 20 September, George was away visiting his Mum in Cheshire, all of them playing for the cameras.

Directly after the signing, as Paul discussed future plans, John told him and Ringo that he was leaving The Beatles and wanted a divorce.

Is that a large picture of J+Y kissing on the wall behind them?

There are some really nice pics (about 21 pics) of George here at home in Kinfauns - the date says 6th April 1969. It's from a facebook group Liverpool and Merseyside area rock bands 1960's but it's not allowing me to post a direct link. An example below.

The picture you posted acts as a direct link to the pictures, @Leppo. Very nice too. Thought it worth them all appearing here.

Here's the full set: George at Kinfauns on 6 April 1969. A photoshoot for either The Times or Sunday Times. The photographer is John Haynes.
