NME reports today that a rare photograph showing The Beatles walking across Abbey Road in the opposite direction to which they are depicted walking on the cover of the legendary 1969 album of the same name will go on the auction block in the UK later this month.
Taken by late photographer Iain Macmillan, notable differences between the two shots include the fact that Paul McCartney is wearing sandals rather than walking barefoot, and the cigarette he’s shown holding on the album version is missing. The print is among a set of 25 being sold by a private collector. Viewings start this Friday, May 18th, 2012, with bids expected to go as high as £9,000 (Approximately $14,300) at auction.
These vintage glass Christmas Tree ornaments of The Fab Four (circa 1964) were made in Italy and are hand blown. An entire set intact is quite rare, but sometimes you can find single ornaments from the set for auction on eBay for upwards of several hundred dollars each.
School just started, right? So, I know this thing has a weird shape and all, but wouldn’t it make the coolest lunch box? Alternatively, it could also be a fun purse or just a unique addition to your vast Beatles Yellow Submarine memorabilia collection (maybe next to this guy).
