8 August, 1969. A Friday. The date of one of the most famous photo-shoots in rock ‘n’ roll history.
John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr walk over the zebra crossing next to Abbey Road studios. There and back. Three times. Six clicks of the shutter. Just six photographs, and the shoot was over.
During his lifetime, photographer Iain MacMillan produced and signed a number of colour prints of each of these Abbey Road session photographs, made to the highest archival standards from the original transparencies. Iain passed away on 8 May 2006 and signed examples of his work are finite and very scarce. They are highly prized amongst Beatles collectors.
Frame three in the sequence is shown here, showing the Beatles traversing left to right, with London traffic in the background. We have one example of this photograph available, made on 20×24 inch paper, from an edition of 25, and signed and numbered on the front under the image area by Iain MacMillan.
