A fan posing in front of Paul McCartney’s London home, Cavendish (August 28, 1969) She writes:
Notice that behind me in the photo above there is what looks like a brass mail slot. I lifted it up to see if I could get a glimpse inside the estate. It wasn’t a mail slot at all, but appeared to house some electronic wiring, etc. As I was standing there waiting for my mom to take a picture from across the street, I heard the big gate start to open. Then I heard the voice of a woman say something, I don’t know what, and then the gate closed shut. My mother and I were both sort of in shock! Look at the expression on my face! Mom took that shot right after the gate had closed!
We left then and speedily walked back to the St. John’s Wood Tube Station giggling all the way and making up all sorts of “what if this” and ” what if that” scenarios! When we surfaced from the Underground in the West End we were greeted at the corner newsstand with the just breaking news that Paul and Linda McCartney’s baby girl, Mary, had been born that afternoon!
Perhaps the lady at the gate had been the infamous, Mrs. Kelly, Paul’s housekeeper, waiting for news about the new little Miss McCartney! I’m sure she was annoyed when she found that it was just another Scruff (and her mother)!
