‘Abbey Road’

Who knew? If you look closely at the animated Gif created for the classic Beatles album cover ‘Abbey Road,’ it appears they were the precursor to Monty Python’s “Silly Walks.”

In reality, the iconic album cover featuring the band crossing the street was the idea of a sketch created by Paul McCartney. The famous picture was taken on Aug. 8, 1969, and photographer Iain MacMillan had to work under the gun as he was given just 10 minutes to get the shot. MacMillan, up on a stepladder, shot the photo while police held traffic so that the band could cross the street uninterrupted.
