Photos: The Beatles Romp Through London in 1968

Photograph by ©Stephen Goldblatt, 1968, courtesy of Mad Day Out available now through Fotovision Books.

The Beatles outside St. Pancras Old Church and Gardens on Pancras Road, London, July 28, 1968.

On July 28, 1968, The Beatles went out for a photo shoot with a couple of photographers –  Stephen Goldblatt  and Don McCullin to take a break from recording the White Album. It became known as the “Mad Day Out”. They went to several places in London, including Thompson House, Wapping Pier Head, St. Pancras, and Old Street Station.

Goldblatt went on to become a very highly regarded director of photography in Hollywood, so his images languished in a drawer for years until discovered and published by Fotovision as a book.
