ABBEY ROAD PHOTO SHOOT AUGUST 8TH 1969
The Beatles Abbey Road Photo shoot – August 8 1969
On August 8 1969, The Beatles were on a photo shoot for their eleventh studio album, Abbey Road. The album’s cover remains iconic like the music it holds. Photographer Iain Macmillan had only ten minutes to get George, Paul, Ringo and John into position. He used a stepladder to achieve the desired shot.
The zebra crossing gained protected status in 2010.
