Memorabilia: John Lennon’s Orange Spectacles

John Lennon wore these orange tinted spectacles whilst composing his legendary song 'Imagine'. He can be seen wearing them in the documentary 'Imagine: John Lennon', sitting at his Steinway in the sound studio at Tittenhurst Park.

The frames and nose clip are slightly bent as a result of an argument between John and Yoko and the glasses were thrown into a bin, only to be retrieved by an employee.

John was one of the first, along with Buddy Holly, to use his glasses as a fashion statement. The spectacles are made of 14 carat gold and use an early version of photo chromatic glass (a lens that reacts to light and dark surroundings).

See this and many other great items of memorabilia only at the Beatles Story, Liverpool.
