Starkey Family Portraits
Circa March 1968 - Ringo, Maureen, Jason and Zak posing at their Weybridge, Surrey home, Sunny Heights, shortly after the Starrs returned from India. It may be one of Ringo’s self-portraits shot with a delayed action shutter. These rare personal portraits were sold on ebay several years ago. Printed on double weight photographic paper - they appear to have been made in a home darkroom rather than processed at a professional lab.

Visiting Tatia Jayne Starkey
September 9, 1985 - Ringo and Maureen’s son, Zak Starkey, and his wife Sarah became parents of a daughter, Tatia Jayne Starkey, on September 7, 1985, in London - making Ringo the first Beatle to become a grandfather. Maureen flew to London from New York and visited two-day-old Tatia Jayne with her children, Zak, Jason and Lee who posed for the press together outside the hospital.
