New Abbey Road photo?
Seen here is a photo which looks like it’s taken the day of the Abbey Road photo shoot, looking at the clothes Paul and Linda are wearing. Kevin Harrington, who was a stand-in in the preliminary photo taken the day before, is with them.
In the foreground is a uniformed chap, and it looks like a police uniform. Could this be what is described in some accounts of the photo shoot, the policeman who was there to hold up the traffic? Or perhaps it’s the E.M.I. studios doorman. It could even be that the doorman was holding up the traffic, and some may have thought he was a policeman. This theory is supported by the fact that the police van was a latecomer to the photo session and only appeared in the final two photos of the six attempts photographer Iain Macmillan did for the front cover of the album.
