Hi

just thought you would be interested to know I have ABEY of the Abbey Road sign on back cover of Beatles album!

I used to live on Abbey Road and near the wall which had the road sign before it was demolished to make way for new estate i only managed to rescue 4 tiles the rest were destroyed they are at auction on 26th Nov 2011 google live auctioneers for link

 

The end of the sign was NW8 in those days the postal district it was on the junction with Alexandra Road most of which was also demolished...

Ooh, you lucky thing. If I had those I'd never part with them. Well done for rescuing them.

Btw here's the link to the auction.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away

Can buy me love! Please consider using these links to support the Beatles Bible: Amazon | iTunes

I have a similiar crossing  pose but the girl in the distant background I believed to be the girl we see a bit of on the back of the Abbey Road cover is also in this photo  but apparently was taken by Linda  Bonni Benrubi Gallery – Linda McCartney – The Beatles, Abbey Road, London, 1969    I also did a Wikipedia check then noticed a previous post explaining the unknown girl was never intented to be in the pic just bad timing according to Iian Macmillan  I'll take a guess that since Paul chose and approved the pic for the front cover, He must have liked the girl in the mini and they decided to go with it.apple01

Was looking around the net and found a new clue in Paul being dead. If you turn the back cover of Abbey Road 90 degrees and look at the lady elbow you can see Pauls image. Why that would mean Paul is dead is another matter entirely? Maybe he became trapped in her elbow.

I definitely do not see it.

Cant remember if this has been posted before but since this thread has been revisited here's a blog that disputes the idea that the zebra crossing was moved, it has photos for evidence so its not a random thought.

Wog Blog article on the back cover. I couldn't remember where I'd previously posted updates on his research on the artwork, but this thread is certainly relevant.
