Sara: "This is another example of what I believe is a fan traded photo. Here is what I believe happened. Many fans wrote to George’s lovely mother, Louise Harrison and she was a kind soul and wrote fans back. Fans would ask for photos of George and she would often send them some rare photographs of George with the family. The fans then get copies of these made and trade them within the Beatles fan pen pal circuits. This particular photo looks like someone tried to "zoom in" more on George and cut out other members of the family. Although it also could have been a bad photographer. I don’t know for sure that is how this photograph came about (except that Gina owned this particular one and scanned it) but that is my best guess. I still like to think of this blog as the "modern day" version of Beatle pen pal photo trading."
Anonymous (from the comments): "I have this photo too with a slightly fuller crop. It was taken by George’s brother Peter Harrison May 19, 1968 at the christening of Peter and Pauline Harrison’s first child, son Ian Harrison (born Nov. 16, 1967). In the photo Ian is being held by his cousin Paul Harrison, age 8, (son of Harry and Irene). George and Pattie had flown back to London from the Cannes Film Festival that day and then drove to George’s parent’s home to meet up with the family and attend their nephew’s christening at St. Mary’s church in Penketh. They returned to London that evening in time for George’s recording session with the Beatles. This photo was sold through the Harrison Alliance fanzine in the 70’s and early 80’s, but prior to that it was sold through the George Harrison Chapter of the Official Beatles Fan Club."

Just picked up this book off of Ebay. Features some really rare, and unpublished photos of the Beatles during their visit to France in 1964 and 1965. These are my scans, PLEASE PLEASE don’t crop, edit or steal my hard work. I’d hate to have to go back to putting the watermark across everything to deter those who pilfer pictures.
