It’s fifty years since the iconic Abbey Road photograph was taken of the Beatles. It’s a photo that is instantly recognisable to all, young and old.
According to the ABC, hundreds of people have gathered at probably the world’s most famous pedestrian crossing to mark the 50th anniversary of the day the Beatles created one of the best-known album covers in music history.
The picture of the fab four striding over the zebra crossing on Abbey Road was taken outside the EMI Recording Studios.
All four Beatles gathered at EMI Studios on the morning of Friday 8 August 1969 for one of the most famous photo shoots of their career. Photographer Iain Macmillan took the iconic image that adorned their last-recorded album, Abbey Road.
