Beatles’ fans flock to Abbey Road for album cover’s 50th anniversary

Hundreds of people gathered at the famous Abbey Road pedestrian crossing outside the EMI Recording studios in London on Thursday, to mark the 50th anniversary of the day The Beatles were photographed walking across it.

The cover for the “Abbey Road” album would become one of the best-known in music history and has been imitated by countless fans.

“Abbey Road,” which was voted the best Beatles album by Rolling Stone readers in 2009, was the only one of the group’s original British albums not to show the band’s name or title on the cover.

The EMI studios, which were later renamed Abbey Road, and the pedestrian crossing were granted protected status by the government in 2010.
