    Description

    The Beatles "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!" Circus Poster in Frame. The famous song from Sgt. Pepper "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite" written by John Lennon was inspired by a 19th-century circus poster for Pablo Fanque's Circus Royal appearance at Rochdale. This is a nice reproduction. It is framed to an approximate size of 11" by 17". Lennon purchased the original poster in an antique shop January 1967, while the Beatles were filming the promotional films for "Strawberry Fields Forever" and "Penny Lane." He said, "Everything from the song is from that poster, "except the horse wasn't called Henry."The poster identifies the horse as "Zanthus". Will look great on the wall. From the Connie and Dennis Dailey Monumental Beatles Collection. COA from Heritage Auctions.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
