John Lennon Memorabilia is to be auctioned at the Durban High School Old Boys Breakfast on Saturday 1 June.

DHS Old Boy, Gavin Varejes, has donated to School an authenticated copy of John Lennon’s autographed original handwritten lyrics of the song “Imagine”.

The 700 x 900 framed memorabilia comprises the lyrics of “Imagine” as well as various photographs of John together with the historical facts of his musical career.

Lennon composed “Imagine” one morning in early 1971, on a Steinway piano, in a bedroom at his Tittenhurst Park estate in Ascot, Berkshire, England. His wife Ono watched as he composed the melody, chord structure and almost all the lyrics, nearly completing the song in one brief writing session.

One of 100 authenticated copies (Gavin has the original), this item is to be auctioned at the DHS Foundation Trust Old Boys Breakfast on Saturday 1 June with a reserve of R20 000.00.

We are very pleased to receive this unique and exciting item to auction and invite pre-bids from interested parties.  If you are interested in submitting a bid, please send it to admin@dhsfoundation.co.za before Friday 31 May 2019.
