London, U.K. 1964
Accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity

23 West Smithfield is the former London address of Farringdon Studio. This was the location of photographer Robert Whitaker's first assignment with the Beatles in late 1964. After Robert Whitaker had held a session with the Beatles at Abbey Road, he was enlisted by NEMS to schedule a session here, which was carried out in October 1964. Pictures from the shoot appeared on the cover of the U.S. album Beatles ‘65 and in the U.K. on The Beatles Million  Sellers EP that came out in December 1965.

When Beatlemania exploded, Whitaker was along for the wild ride. He was backstage, he was in the studio, he went to the boys’ homes, he became their friend. Robert Whitaker devised many of the iconic Beatles images, and his pictures were taken during one of the most popular periods in the band's history.
