August 8, 1969: Abbey Road Cover Is Shot

0

Today in 1969, photographer Iain MacMillan shot the now-iconic picture of the The Beatles crossing Abbey Road, just outside EMI Studios. The picture would become the cover art for their album Abbey Road. The image is presented as the sole focal point of the album cover, lacking the band and album names. It is one of most iconic images in music history. The crosswalk is now “listed” in the U.K., meaning it will be preserved for its “cultural and historical significance.” EarthCam has had a webcam permanently installed at the crosswalk since 2011.
