A Day in the Life of Abbey Road

Time lapse video of tourists recreating the famous Beatles’ Abbey Road album cover.

Some trivia about the iconic cover:

The cover designer was Apple Records creative Director Kosh. The cover photograph was taken by photographer Iain Macmillan. Macmillan was given only ten minutes around 11:30 that morning to take the photo. … The man standing on the pavement in the background is Paul Cole (1911 – d 13 February 2008) a US tourist unaware he’d been photographed until he saw the album cover months later.

Confession: When I was in London some years back I too visited this street.
