Who's Who ?
 
One of the stories in "In His Own Write" is called "Henry and Harry".

Some Beatles scholars think these were two people John actually knew.

Who could they be?

Henry Parkin and Harry Harrison

Nope.

Wouldn't make much sense, but I'm gonna guess it's autobiographical w himself and Alfred.

zipp Aug 06, 2014 02:45 PM

No, it's not John himself and Alfred.

But you're on the right lines and it's a real father and son.

Who are...Brian Epstein and Harry Epstein? Worth a shot.

zipp Aug 07, 2014 12:10 AM

Yes, worth a shot.

It's that kind of situation where the father wants his son to go into a particular trade and the son has other ideas.

What about those Harrison's? Harry Harrison wanted George Harrison to be an electrician.

Yes indeed.

It's thought the father in the story is Harold (Harry) Harrison who wanted so much for his son to become an electrician that he gave him a set of tools as a Xmas present.

George would therefore be Henry who wanted to do something completely different with his life.
