Reply Nigel Reigate February 27, 2010 Yes, Pete it is. Reply southcott February 27, 2010 Are you sure? I thought the Apple building was in Baker Street. Reply Davecat February 28, 2010 Lovely scooters in the last photo! Reply Dodo February 28, 2010 Oh, picture #1! I want her shoes. And I demand a return to the insouciant foulard for gentlemen. Reply Fishislandskin August 31, 2010 The brightly coloured building is the Lord John Shop on Carnaby street and is definatly not the Beatles Apple Boutique which was located at 94 Baker Street, I worked in Carnaby Street from 1966 to 1967 and also worked in the Apple shop prior to it closing down. Reply Sarah November 3, 2010 I’m researching Carnaby street for a novel, can anyone help? A shopkeeper who still works in one of the little shops in Ganton Street said it used to be paved in orange? I want to site a bookshop as near as possible, but I get the feeling that within the Carnaby street area wouldn’t work as it was all clothes. Would it feel wrong to read about one there, or where would have been a good site close too? Reply Steve Gershinson December 17, 2010 The Apple shop which was owned by the Beatles was in Baker street and run by a Sweedish couple who designed the clothes. The Apple Corp. offices were in Saville Row. Reply Mike February 23, 2011 The Beatles shop was in Baker Street, at the corner with Paddington Steet, where I worked in 1966. In Paddington Street, that is, not in the shop! Reply Ferdinand Edwards June 1, 2011 Carnaby Street post cars,ie pedestrianised, was paved in an orange and black coloured kind of triangulated chequerboarded pattern which got grubbier and grubbier, now long gone. But it looked great in the 70′s and 80′s. The place was always a honeypot for youth/tourists and the second wave of mods/ska boys. Was THE place to go for funky clothes in the late 60′s – I went to George Best’s shop for far out shirts and maybe a chance to see the man which of course never happened. But I did meet him at his Dover Street club Blondes in the 80′s…… Reply thom May 13, 2012 Visited Carnaby St on a school trip around 1967-8 and always remember the bright yellow shop frontages where the shop colour schemes were also painted onto the pavement in front of the shops. Reply JOHN eel June 30, 2012 I remember hearing loud hippie farting on Carnaby when I was a child, I wonder what they really ate???
