A cache of photos showing John Lennon writing Give Peace A Chance during his famous bed- in with yoko ono in Montreal in 1969 have been unearthed.

When Life photographer Gerry Deiter took the shots, Lennon was considered an important figure in popular culture. As the leader of the most popular rock band ever, his views on politics and spirituality were, rightly or wrongly, taken very seriously indeed.
