There is a rare photo of the Beatles walking in the opposite direction as the photo used on the Abby Road Album cover that just fetched twenty five thousand dollars at auction.

Ian Macmillan only had 10 minutes to shoot the photos in 1969 for the Abby Road cover.  He stood on a ladder, and had the Beatles walk back and forth.  One of the reasons that this particular photo was so different is because, not only are they walking backwards, but Paul is wearing sandals, and not barefoot like in the photo they chose to use for the album cover.

Here’s some video that I got from Spinner.com

I believe that when it comes to music, at the root, there are only two kind of people. There are Beatle people, and then there are Elvis people. Cast your opinion…
