Rare Photo of The Beatles Walking "Backwards" on Abbey Road, 1969

A rare photo by Iain Macmillan showing The Beatles -- from left, John Lennon, Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney and George Harrison -- walking from right to left across the famous zebra crossing near Abbey Road Studio, where the band recorded the bulk of their EMI catalog, including their 1969 album, Abbey Road.

It's also worth noting that McCartney is wearing sandals (He's barefoot on the album cover), and the cigarette he's holding on the official version is nowhere to be found.
