fifty years ago ...

... the Beatles were first playing in the US.  The looks in this version of them date from a couple of years later, but the general faded over-yellowedness of this suggests the passage of plenty of time (rather than suggesting the truth: a blurry car windshield and my iPhone my only photographic weapon to hand).  I keep meaning to find a better angle for this spectacularly kitschy portrait of the Fab Four.  Fifty years ago?  I struggle to remember my birthday week then, but I believe that my mother and I went to Fullers cake shop by the 200 bus stop, down Wimbledon Hill, and bought a coffee cake - that is, a coffee flavored cake, with coffee icing and walnuts.  Trust me to remember the food.
