Before Abbey Road

Kottke posted this neat photo taken before the iconic one was snapped which would later appear on the cover of the Beatles “Abbey Road” album. From Wikipedia:

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 on a zebra crossing on Abbey Road while a policeman stopped the traffic. …The man standing on the pavement in the background is Paul Cole (c. 1911 – 13 February 2008), an American tourist unaware he had been photographed until he saw the album cover months later.
