[Picture] Making History: The Shot Before The Beatles “Abbey Road” Iconic Cover
Perhaps the most iconic image by The Beatles, the memorable ‘Abbey Road’. Unseen by many, here is the shot taken prior to the shot that we all have come to know and love. What is truly amazing about this image is the innocence of the moment. They are oblivious to the importance of the image which is about to be captured. Moments later, the cover of Abbey Road was made and sealed into history.
The image in itself speaks volumes. Can you imagine being an onlooker to that specific moment? I wonder about what is going on in their minds. We’ll never know.
As a bonus, here are some additional outtakes from the shoot itself.
