The Beatles - Abbey Road photo session - 1969
In 1969, on a hot August day, Iain MacMillan stood on a ladder in the middle
of Abbey Road, London to replicate a sketch drawn by Paul McCartney depicting
what he wanted the Abbey Road album cover to look like. Abbey Road was just a
few yards away from the entrance of EMI's studios where most of the Beatles'
songs were recorded since 1962. The photo session took only 10 minutes, with
a police officer holding up the traffic.
Nevertheless; a rare photograph taken during the shoot for the Abbey Road
cover shows the Beatles walking back across the road, from right to left.
Recently it has been sold at auction for over $25,000.
