Cartoonists On Abbey Road
As today is the 50th (!) anniversary of the photo shoot for the cover of The Beatles Abbey Road album I thought it was a good time to link to a piece I wrote back in 2011 about the Abbey Road live webcam (the piece appeared on The New Yorker‘s site). Today’s a great day to visit the action. Last I checked in there was a fellow dressed all in white, ala John Lennon on the album cover, posing for pictures as he accompanied visitors back-and-forth across the street. It’s a happy scene all around. But of course what else would you expect from a Beatle event.
Since Ink Spill is a site dedicated to New Yorker cartoonists, I dug out a couple of photos of New Yorker cartoonists crossing Abbey Road in March of 2000. That’s me in the top photo and Liza Donnelly in the bottom photo. Our two Beatlemaniac daughters were with us.
