Abbey Road photo shoot
On August 8th 1969, The Beatles crossed Abbey Road. This seemingly simple act done my thousands of commuters a day would culminate into one of the most iconic photos in music history.
Photographs were taken by Iain Macmillan, based on a pencil sketch of Paul's. Macmillan was given only ten minutes to get the shot standing on a stepladder, while police held up traffic behind him. Six photographs were taken in total; Paul later chose the fifth shot to be used for the cover, as this was the only photo in which all four Beatles were walking in time.
