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

https://youtu.be/c3RCINjO92s

*my guess would be August 7th, the day before the Abbey Road album cover photoshoot (https://www.beatlesbible.com/1969/08/07/recording-mixing-come-together-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.
