John Lennon Bed-In For Peace (1969) (1)
Color Still: 8" x 9 3/4" (20 x 25cm)
Photo of John Lennon at the Bed-In For Peace in 1969.
Lennon and his new bride, Yoko Ono, held a 7-day "bed-in" at a Montreal hotel to protest the Vietnam War.
They also recorded the single "Give Peace A Chance" in the hotel room.
During that time, the couple gave media interviews and opened the door to many fans and curiosity-seekers, who filed through the room to meet the couple and, in some cases, take photographs.
This unpublished photograph appears to have been taken by an amateur photographer.
Though taken in 1969, the address stamp of the photography studio on the back likely dates this print to the early 1970s, when Canada Post first started using the new postal code system.
Condition: Fine (a 2-inch strip of tape at the bottom edge; a creased top left corner; a tiny surface indentation in Lennon's hair; very faint age toning along the edges from where the photo was matted; tape stains and ink stamps on the back that do not affect the front)
