The Beatles - "Abbey Road" (1969). Cover photograph taken 8 August 1969 outside EMI Studios on Abbey Road. At around 11:30 that morning, photographer Iain Macmillan was given only ten minutes to take the photo whilst he stood on a step-ladder and a policeman held up the traffic.

Abbey Road

The Beatles' Abbey Road. If it were a life & death situation and I was forced to chose my favorite album of all time, it would be Abbey Road, right before Dark Side of the Moon. there's so much feeling attached to it. It really speaks to me.
