Pop Culture History
At around 11:30am on August 8th 1969, the fab four strutted across the pedestrian (zebra!) crossing by Abbey Road Studios and into pop culture history.
The album cover photograph was taken by photographer Iain Macmillan and is now one of the most famous and most imitated album covers in recording history. Abbey Road was the last album The Beatles recorded together as a band. Only six pictures were taken in all, and the photo shoot lasted for 10 minutes.
Did you know?
1. Paul McCartney is bare-footed and out of step with John Lennon, Ringo Starr and George Harrison, prompting a conspiracy that Paul had died and been replaced by a lookalike!
2. The Volkswagen Beetle parked next to the zebra crossing belonged to one of the people living in the apartment across from the recording studio. After the album came out, the number plate was stolen repeatedly from the car. In 1986, the car was sold at an auction for $23,000 and is currently on display at the Volkswagen museum in Wolfsburg, Germany.
3. The man standing on the pavement in the background is Paul Cole, an American tourist unaware he had been photographed until he saw the album cover months later.
4. In the UK Abbey Road was the best-selling album of 1969 and the fourth best-selling of the entire 1960s, and the eighth best-selling album of 1970.
