Kazakh Bank Buys Beatles Abbey Road Picture

At an auction in London last month, a picture (one of the 6 that were taken during the famous "Abbey Road Pedestrian Crossing" session) was sold for a whopping £16,000. And the new owner? A Kazakh bank called RBK.

The picture, of which only 25 copies exist, was taken by photographer Iain Macmillan. Big differences between this picture and the one that made it on the cover of the famous Abbey Road record, are that the Beatles are walking right to left, and that Paul isn't holding a cigarette nor walking barefoot.

I have no idea what the bank will do with this picture, but I hope they have a nice place in one of their offices. And yes, you can say that now the Beatles are back in the U.S.S.R, even if Kazakhstan is no longer part of the great Russion Union.
