Mick Jagger and Keith Richards at Primary School Together, 1951

How many photos do you think there are of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards together? Thousands? Hundreds of thousands? A gazillion? Maybe. But here’s a rare one – it’s a class photograph captures the life-changing moment Mick Jagger and Keith Richards met for the first time at Primary School in 1951. The pair met when they were both enrolled at Wentworth Primary School, in Dartford, Kent. It took a bit longer to meet up again as teenagers and form The Rolling Stones, but the friendship started here.
