It's surely the most-used zebra crossing in the world...
The Abbey Road album cover was created on August 8, 1969 by photographer Iain MacMillan. The photo showed all four Beatles on the crossing.
Macca walked across the road on his way to an intimate gig at Abbey Road Studios, with daughter Mary filming the amazing moment. After he got halfway, McCartney turned back and did a quick pose for the camera.
The Abbey Road zebra crossing is still in use, with countless people around the world visiting for a quick recreation and photograph, despite the road itself being quite busy!
In fact, you can watch a live stream of the crossing, where you're guaranteed to see someone try to recreate it within seconds, much to annoyance of motorists.
