Mother's birthday this year. Found this at a flea market at Bacardi #nh7 #weekender #2013 Pune. She introduced me to 'good' music before I could even spell. An apt gift for a (sort of) hipster mother from a (sort of ) photographer son, don't you think? #Beatles #Abby #road #vinyl #1969 #100happydays
