Beatles’ Abbey Road Zebra Crossing is Changed

While the streets of London remain almost entirely empty, the iconic Abbey Road crosswalk is getting a reconstruction. The sacred place for all Beatles fans (and, probably, all the music fans as well) received much-needed cosmetic surgery on March 27th.

Millions, if not billions of tourists have stomped over this zebra crossing ever since The Beatles released their 11th studio album Abbey Road in 1969.

It became immortalized by photographer Iain Macmillan who took a picture of John, Paul, George and Ringo mid-crossing the street that would later give the album its name.

This Friday London municipal crew covered the zebra crossing with a fresh coat of bright white paint. The council workers handiwork was then left to dry in peace since there was basically no one to walk or ride over it.

However, the Abbey Road live webcam now shows a few Londoners hanging around the renewed crosswalk.
