50 years ago today, Iain MacMillan snapped the iconic album cover for The Beatles’ 11th studio album, Abbey Road. The VW Beetle, instantly identifiable because of its curved shape–was a coincidence, according to @GreatBritain on Twitter. The owner parked it in a serendipitous spot, not realizing it would be included in the most recognizable album cover of all time.
This first-edition 33-rpm album, also curved, is as pristine as the day it was released, back in September ’69.
The prompt for Day 8 of #AugustBreak2019, if you haven’t already guessed, is CURVED.
