Abbey Road

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.
