DEVIN McKINNEY • Reach into cyberspace and you’d swear you have a magnet hand. Things just fly into your palm. Like this great shot of two of our best boys in full gorgeous sweat. It just came to me off a Spanish website and bears the legend, Lennon e McCartney em seus melhores momentos.

I‘ve never seen the picture before and cannot place its provenance. I therefore pose a puzzle: can anyone devise a plausible guess, from the minimal evidence, as to when, where, and what occasion in the midst of which this was taken? Look at the hair length, the clothing styles, those unfamiliar guitars … Is it Abbey Road, a club, or some unrecorded elsewhere? Who’s the cat in the shades half-hidden in the rear? My guess is circa 1965, but beyond that, I’m flammisched.
Imagine the truth—but imagine it well!
