Mr Anonymous Eppy-clone and the Mystery Tour

I had seen the below photo before, but never had the occasion nor the inclination to ask about it. This was taken during the making of MMT, which was ever-so-shortly after the expiration of our Eppy.

Magical Mystery sweatervested Macca speaks with mysterious stranger slightly resembling his late friend and manager

Now that I happened across it again in this comment in beatlepics, I shall ask everyone if anyone has any idea at all ~ who the hell IS that anonymous bloke with Paulie?

This man's slight resemblance to Brian has driven me bonkers.
Brian Epstein did have cousins close to his own age.

Here is my original press photo of
Brian's cousin Basil Hyman, and
(to my eyes) even HE doesn't resemble
Brian as much as this fella does.

This was an impulse eBay purchase.
The photo was initially a mistaken
identity shot by reporters, as you can
see by the markings on the back.

Basil Hyman had just made a visit to
Brian's 24 Chapel Street home the
day after his death.

I love everything to do with
the Epstein/Hyman families.

Clive Epstein was blond, and this photo of him (far right) is from his wedding in the 60's ~ and even Clive looks less like Brian than Mr Anonymous does.

BTW, I'm shocked that most of the images in This Old Beatlepics eBay Pirated Spam are still showing up!!! Neat, neat photos, people.
