A Friday in August 1969 became the day of one of the most famous photo-shoots in rock ‘n’ roll history. The Beatles – John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr – walking over the zebra crossing next to Abbey Road studios. They walked back and forth three times and had 6 images taken in total and the shoot was over. This image the fifth frame of six, showing a left to right traverse, was chosen as the actual cover. Abbey Road (the first British Beatles LP without the name of the band or the title of the album on the front) was released in the UK on 26 September 1969 and debuted at number 1. Rolling Stone magazine voted it number 14 of the top 500 albums of all time.
