A train and a room and a car and a room...
If you are interested in more gorgeous photos of the Beatles from the set of A Hard Day's Night, in addition to other locations, pick up Yesterday: The Beatles Once Upon a Time, with photos taken by Astrid Kirchherr and Mac Scheler. The top seven pictures of John are in that book in excellent quality. The other pictures are from the Beatles Film magazine of 1964.
Two other recent photo books that are absolutely essential to Lennon fans: Instamatic Karma: Photographs of John Lennon by May Pang and John and Yoko: A New York Love Story by Allan Tannenbaum. The candid shots of John taken by May Pang are so delightful, intimate, and beautiful. The highlights for me are the pictures of John with his cats Major and Minor (as well as the photos with Julian, Ringo and Paul, needless to say).
