Beatles and Bystanders

From April 13th to May 28th, 2011, Snap Galleries in London present an exhibition of all the photos taken by Iain MacMillan in conjunction with the Beatles’ famous “Abbey Road” crossing for the cover of the album of the same name. Six of the seven photos depict the Beatles going back and forth over the crossing, and the seventh is the back cover photo. The photos are also for sale. Address: 8 Piccadilly Arcade, London. In their presentation, Snap Galleries take it for granted that the “bystander” next to the police van has been correctly identified (by himself) as Paul Cole, an opinion that we at least feel should be open for discussion. But then, we ARE Beatles nerds!
