Back on August 8, 1969, photographer Iain Macmillan snapped six shots of John, Paul, George and Ringo striding single-file across the street while police stopped traffic.
Paul then chose one for the cover.
50 years later, fans snapped photos on cellphones while lookalikes from a Beatles cover band crossed the street in tribute.
Beatles tour guide Richard Porter says about 300,000 come every year to have their pictures taken at the famous crossing.
”Every hour of ever day there are fans on the crossing,” adds Porter.
”I’ve seen lots of different sights on the crossing, too, from couples having their wedding photos taken to people going across naked.”
