Alexandra Road

This is the location for the back cover of the Abbey Road album. The photo was taken at the junction of Abbey Road and Alexandra Road (now gone). I have superimposed the back cover photo over an old fan photo from 1969, click to enlarge. Alexandra Road, the street sign and the surrounding buildings were demolished to make way for the “Abbey Road” housing estate in the early 1970s.

    Is it a stupid question but, could the girl in the photo with the guy at the sign be the same girl that appears on the back cover?
