Las Vegas pawn shop owner Rick Harrison of “Pawn Stars” fame calls it one of the coolest things he ever bought – what appears to be authentic photos and color negatives from the Beatles’ Abbey Road album shoot.
The album cover’s imagery is iconic – it features the band walking in step on a cross walk near Abbey Road studios, all of them wearing suits except George, all of them wearing shoes except Paul.
It stands on its own as a cool cover, but there’s another layer of mythology attached to this iconic photo.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
