Today marks 50 years since this photograph — which would go on to be the cover shot for The Beatles' Abbey Road album — was taken.

Hundreds of fans thronged the pedestrian crossing on Thursday to celebrate the anniversary of the photograph. Beatles' lovers of all ages recreated the famous image by posing along the crossing, many of them barefoot.

The occasion was particularly joyful for one member of a Beatles' cover band, who proposed to his partner on the zebra crossing.

Abbey Road was the Beatles' 11th studio album and features some of the band's best-known songs like Come Together Now, Something and Here Comes the Sun. Iain Macmillian, the Scottish photographer who captured the images in north London in 1969 is said to have completed the entire shoot in just ten minutes.
