There has been an Abbey Road cam for some time, but this is the first one I've seen that also features sound. Plus this one seems to be higher def visually. I've been there and crossed it myself, but regret that I didn't have a camera and get a photo. But, at least, I've been there. Before they moved it. And in Liverpool too. The summer after John was murdered (when Princess Di got married). Crazy how popular that crosswalk is after ALL these years. Will it ever end?

I just clicked on it.... I saw 3 guys crossing and a forth outside the crosswalk taking a picture of them - that guy almost got hit.

Looks like a pretty busy intersection.

Just after high school, I joined a band that did this. I played piano, did the high part, and barked.

When I posted this before (Beatles 'Abbey Road' cover photo was shot 45 years ago today), I couldn't figure out where the vantage point of the Beatles shot was vs the current live camera.
