    On the 8 August 1969, at around 11:30am, a policeman stopped the traffic outside Abbey Road Studios, Macmillan climbed up a large stepladder in the middle of Abbey Road and took just six pictures of the Beatles crossing the street. In approximately 10 minutes Macmillan shot the band in various orders, but it was frame no.5 that was used for the cover of undoubtedly one of the most iconic album covers of all time, Abbey Road.
