Planning the Shoot for the Abbey Road Album Cover

This post is a bit old–it dates back to April–but I’m grateful to Josh for pointing me in this direction.  It details the work that went into shooting the cover artwork for the Beatles’ Abbey Road album, which took place on August 7, 1969.

Imagine driving through St. John’s Wood and having to stop for these guys at the zebra crossing.
