A day in the life of Abbey Road


The iconic photo of the Beatles on the crossing outside Abbey Road Studios was taken in August 1969.

The photograph, taken by Scottish photographer Iain Macmillan, features John Lennon in a white suit and a barefoot Paul McCartney.

Ever since the image appeared on the front of their Abbey Road album, the crossing has become a place of pilgrimage.

Scores of Beatles fans visit every day to recreate the famous pose.
