Everyone knows the famous beatles photo on the crossing outside the Abbey Road Studios- right?
Yesterday back in 1969, the photo session for the cover of the Abbey Road album took place. Photographer Iain McMillan, balanced on a step-ladder in the middle of the road took six shots of John, Ringo, Paul, and George walking across the zebra crossing while a policeman held up the traffic. The band then returned to the studio and recorded overdubs on ‘The End’, ‘I Want You (She’s So Heavy)’ and ‘Oh! Darling’.
